Tnt by Dick Stark

2 December 2004

TNT project started Jan 04; I used the frame kit, fastener kit, fiberglass and epoxies provided by your company. Found everything easy to work with and according to specs, however, epoxy pumps would have been a big help. The plans were complete and easy to follow.

She is 12 ft in length. The transom height was increased to 21" and reinforced, additional knees added along with sheet aluminum. The longitudinals are mahogany, decking and bottom are constructed with marine 5 ply, cowling behind the seats 3/4" x 1/4" cedar strips (fiberglased).

The entire exterior area has been fiberglased. A 12 gal gas tank was installed in the bow area. She has single cable steering. Full instrumentation: Volt meter, gas guage, speedometer, and tach. She is powered by a new 50 hp Yamaha. All that has to to be done to complete this project is painting. Will send additional pictures when she is in the water.

Thanks for a fun project!
