Wayne Reynolds of Washington sent this report and photos above on the LA PAZ 22 he completed from our plans:

"All in all, it was the most satisfying and rewarding project I have ever undertaken. The objective was to get the largest, lightest, and fastest trailerable boat that I could handle myself, as well as to be able to take lots of gear and people. "ANTICIPATION" [his LA PAZ] has fulfilled and surpassed all of those expectations." [Wayne powers his boat with a 150HP Evinrude and reports a top speed of 50 MPH and cruise speed of 35 MPH.]




John Canepa built his LA PAZ 22 for use in the waters off the Southern California and Baja California coast. He reports excellent performance results with good speed, fuel economy, plus ample range. A retired commercial fisherman, this was John’s first boat - Nice job John!



Hubert Terbille's LA PAZ 22 (above) is coming along nicely in North Carolina.  Note his bottom "paint" made from graphite powder mixed with epoxy resin. This eliminates the need for special bottom paint on wood boats that won't remain in the water for long periods, and provides a very slippery "low-drag" surface as well.  Also note the boat's rugged framed structure for superior strength, longevity, and fatigue resistance. Frame contours are provided by FULL SIZE PATTERNS that come with the plans.
Latest performance report from Mr. Terbille:

"I just gave my La Paz 22 [see photo at right] its first test run and I am extremely pleased with its performance. It is powered with a Yamaha 150 and pops right up on plane with power to spare.  I have not run at top speed yet but my guess is she will do 40-50 with ease. The boat is very steady in turns with no skidding. I have not had her in rough water yet but she cuts thru wakes with ease... Great design!"
(And thanks to you Mr. Terbille for the photos & info.)
