Waterlodge has interested me for a while. No bending, cheap lumber.

Yes, The Waterlodge would be much easier and probably quicker to build. Has any one ever built one? I cant' find any pictures.

I wasn't too wild about their weight capacity(that was stated)6 people or 900 lbs .I'm not that skinny-It has capacity for 110 gal fuel tank tho.the only bending I can see on Super Huck,is the bow areas of the toons.looks like the taper is gradual.the bend on the bow of the Bo-Jest was pretty intense-and I used 2 layers of 1/4 ply instead of the 3/8's called for.coarse,maybe the staggering of joints and weaving edges didn't help ether? :D

This is the only one I've seen pictures of. But they document the build pretty well. For a second build I think it would go fairly quickly if you had the space to build in a sheltered area.

Boat's looking good Tim. Although I personally think the Waterlodge is too small, it was searching for pontoons and plans for a houseboat that first brought me to this forum and building my Vera Cruise. One thing for sure that I've learned with my cruiser. Building the hull is only about 30 percent of building a boat with a cabin. Outfitting it takes far longer. I think that although the Water Lodge might be simple to build, it will take quite a bit of time to outfit the cabin.

Wow! A 2018 Model year Bo-Jest. That is good motivation to finish up. I look forward to the splash party.

:D Added a 110 buck chunk of bronze to "Chugs" hull today.was uneventful-drill 1-1/4" hole through hull,sand out a little,apply epoxy mix liberally to ply edges and thickened epoxy to fitting and assemble.

:D Been trying to wire the boat.Had to figure out where to put the 2 batteries.Finally settled on a sliding drawer under the motor.not too fancy but battery switch will mount on front and will be recessed enough so won't catch on anything. :D
