has anyone built one of the pangas from beateau.com? my brother is interested. they look like they have an awful forefoot: tortured ply deadrise hull, by the website.
i am recommending the kingfisher dory or the hill long point. it is his first build, and those flat bottom hulls will be easier. i plan on flying out to denver to help him plank.
he wants to trailer the boat down to the baja and go out on the cortez side. he is very experienced with the sea, though maybe not that much at power boating.
