I would greatly appreciate if you can give me your opinion about the following hull design:
This craft is called "verchère" in the province of Quebec, in Canada, and has been used for nearly a century as a working boat on the St-Laurence River. The characteristic is as followed: length: 18 feet, width: 72 inches, depth: 30 inches, weight: 350 lbs. Fiberglass hull with a double bottom. My initial intention was to build a small power sharpie like the Jim Michalak’s AF4. But since I don’t have the space and the time I would like to use the above mentioned boat as the hull and put a plywood cabin on it. Do you think this hull could make an able low cost cruiser sharpie with two berths and a galley?
Thanks in advance.
