Here is my 17 foot boat i built back in 1995. It's 7'6" wide built of marine plywood and epoxy. It's powered by a volvo 4.3 v-6 with single prop outdrive. I drew my own "plans"; side view, top view and transom on 1" scale paper and transfered to full size. Hope you like it; I'll try to upload more pics.http://i1196.photobucket.com/albums/aa403/waynesboats/Scan20.jpg

jig built with shear. Cut out the 2 sides of coverboards in 1/2" marine ply. set up the stem template and keel line to check

Was his a first project? I'll be interested to see further posts of the build process, because that photo of the deck and shear is not a stage of build that I've seen before.

How did you arrive at the design? Was it an amalgam of admired designs or 'all your own work'?

Keep the photos coming, please.

Cheers,
Andy.

Say Andy, this was my first complete build. Fixed up old boats before this. I've seen boats being constructed here in southern Cal. My design was inspired by Seaway boat co. of Long Beach, Calif. which built many boats from 16 foot skiffs up to 75 foot sport fishing boats; all of plywood and mahogany construction. They (Bob Stapp, now retired). also built the original Baywatch boats. I drew spent alot of time getting the lines right on my drafting paper. Couldn't figure out the chines on paper but i figured it would'nt matter since the chines would be paralell from the transom until they were brought in nearing the bow.(had to figure the that amount on the full size boat.

Transom installed and cleat for mating coverboards to side of hull. Yes it's not a deep vee at transom but i figured it's 17 feet and not an offshore boat; It is a very staple fishing platform and i have taken it out many miles offshore for albacore and yellowfin tuna.
