New guy in Northern California (Clear Lake, CA)

Post by Serenity »

Hey all, been haunting the forum for the last year, just reading and gathering info, and I'm about to take the plunge and start my own build.

So I have been pondering over the power plants lately and as much as I would like to use an outboard the cost of a 100hp+ engine is more than I want to spend at one time. So I'm leaning towards an inboard.

As for the boat I'm interested in: kingfisher center console with inboard option.

Has anyone built the kingfisher with the inboard? Any pics of the boat interior or line drawing?

And does anyone know if there are any local builders close to me? Would love to meet you guys.

Will be at the ACBS show at Konocti Vista Casino on Saturday May 31st. Come by the show and look for "Reminiscent" I should be close by. There should be a couple of other builders there too.

Awesome Rich, as long as I'm not working my family and I will be there!! Looking forward to meeting some more local folks.

Now this will be my first build, so be warned, I'll be asking lots of questions.
