Re: Will I fit in a squirt or dyno mite?

I am building a Squirt and I'm 6', 185 lbs and I fit but not easily. However I'm 70 yrs old and have rods in my back. But I do fit and once in it's pretty comfy. I did find an 11" steering wheel for it to make entry easier. I have seen guys who raised the frame at the helm so that could help you. Ju...

Re: SUP

I agree. I've tried it and it's just plain nasty but we know a couple of guys that drink it. And they aren't pretty to watch when they are drinking it

Re: SQUIRT BLUEPRINT WITH TNT PAPERWORK

The Squirt was my first build and I made mistakes. But they can be fixed. I think the biggest mistake I made was not building the building fram high enough so I could get under her to clean up the epoxy that ran. I'm looking forward to my next and bigger build.

Re: SUP

Well Chug, a 350 may be wimpy but when you're living on a small pension a blown big block is kinda out of the question. And the pics that are sideways. Who cares man, she looks good no matter how the pic is laying.....lol

Re: SUP

I will probably order the plans for the rampage and the book about Inboard installation before we leave for Mexico in Sept...I think it would be a fun boat with a 350 and i/o drive. At least that's what I'm thinking now

Re: SQUIRT BLUEPRINT WITH TNT PAPERWORK

Plans for the Squirt are on one page, with a short, I think 2 pages on building and a parts list. If you have any questions Glen L will be more than happy to help you out

Re: Steve from Ohio

The Squirt will be a fun boat. It's my first build and it's been a great learning experience. I hope to start a bigger project as soon as my Squirt gets wet. m

Re: Series 750/1000

Appreciate your input Scott. I'm going with the 3" like the plans show. I have another boat that weighs around 3600 lbs. and her trailer is 4" channel. There is flex but she still pulls well. Better safe than sorry..
