Re: Someone to get advice.

Just ask here. Many of the builds are done the same. Your boat is not much different from Barrel back or a Tahoe. You will get help.

A cold mold boat, with all the battens probably could be flipped. But, I would feel better if the bottom or side planking were on it.

Re: Making a monto Carlo wider

Steven Generally, engine stringers are set 26" inside face to inside face. When you are sure of your engine choice, you can probably go to their web site and see detailed drawings of the engine and mounts. I printed mine for the Tahoe full size. I then glued them to some very cheap ply and made...
