Maybe, I'll withdraw the offer and put it on my sailboat. The head would be much nicer with back support. :lol:

Steve already has a date with the middle of the lake!

I can't see a problem. A 10 hp diesel is about 300#. I'd try to get the prop about the same location. With an outboard you can have directional thrust which is much nicer than a fixed prop.

Door Prize?

Well, Maybe. This is my first try. I plan to build a second and use the best one in the boat. Y'all come. :lol:

On my boat with 6 oz. cloth. At the chine to bottom, keel to keel, bottom to transom topsides to transom and stem to stem, two layers no clouds. At the transom/topside/bottom 3 layers, no clouds.

This is not an issue. Maybe if you do it on a rainy date.

I am not the Expert. But, look at the latest news letter. Barry asked me to contribute. We put together, pretty much, a step by step cold mold hull build.

This was my first. You can do it. :wink:

Part of the answer on glassing the deck bears on if you are going to have a smooth deck or use caulk. The lose in clarity is insignificant. If you twist your head just right, in the right angle to the sun and squint on eye, you might see a little fabric. Another issue is, that on most boats the deck...

:oops: Didn't do my homework. Pretty boats. Still the designs here are not for the engine that far back. I want to look more at the C site.

:? I'm only familiar with Cherubini's sailboat designs (JC Sr. not JC II).

But, the classic inboards are not wide enough in the stern to shift the CG that far back. If you find a V-drive design, you can probably change to stern drive.

The only problem I see is ventilation. After use, it could take days for everything to dry out.

I'm using a 125 hp (metric) diesel rated 3800/3700 rpm w/1.25:1 ratio. that gives me about 3000 rpm at the shaft. That should give me about 39 mph with a 13"x16" pitch prop. This is putting in about a 10-12% slip factor. This is a Monaco type boat at about 2600#. For a given hp, a diesel w...
