Bandido Center Console

Post by marnold » Mon Sep 14, 2015 9:04 pm

After reviewing the Bandido design, I believe it would be an exceptional fishing boat. I'm hoping to add a center console and use the twin outboard design with 2x 200hp engines. Can anyone share their thoughts or concerns about this plan. Any replies would be great.

Thanks

I deleted the cabin on Double Eagle plans.
I am not running the power that you are speaking of, but I did delete the cabin and build it into a center console.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

Thanks for the reply. That makes me feel more confident that I am on the right track. I plan to replace the cabin with a v seating area. I'll keep everyone posted as I plan to start the build in Oct.

Any news on your Bandido build? I'm also considering this model...
Cheers.
