i was curious about pauls build myself. Especially the lack of fiberglass, Im still amazed at times, that my hull is only 1/4 " plywood, with a layer of 7 oz fiberglass cloth.
It was a great weekend playing with the project boat. 16ft Blue fin aluminum hull, '57 Mercury 40hp running a 2 blade 12 pitch prop with a full load. 21 mph. it ran and performed great.
Im running a 12 pitch, 2 blade prop on this mark 55. Its on a 16ft blue fin aluminum hull. Has to be 400lbs between me and the wife. 2 full 6 gal gas tanks, battery, case of beer, ice, food, bar b que, chairs etc. I had a top speed of 22mph. Does that sound right to you guys. Thanks for all your hel...
