We have finally launched our Pee Wee "Periwinkle". She is powered by a 2005 Mercury 9.9 HP 2 stroke. This is the most HP I would put on this boat. She is very quick, and at full throttle she can be a little tough to handle. I wouldn't send an inexperienced child out in this with the 9.9 outboard. My 10 year old Annie has a lot of time at the helm of my 18 ft center consol, and I was still a little nervous.
I made some minor modifications to the original design. I added deck combing to resemble a wind screen, and both the fore deck and side decks are packed with as much flotation as would fit. I also cut in the transom and curved the side decks using left over material from the sheer clamp. The seat cushion is a standard 96 qt. Igloo cooler pad from West Marine. My goal was for her to resemble mini a Donzi 18. As you can see she looks very small rafted to my 18 center consol.
Thank you Glen-L for the great plans/frame kit, and for your expert advise any time I called with a question. I gladly tell everyone who asks that she is a Glen-L design, and she attracts a lot of attention.
