You know how they have these silly "sportfishing" boats with say 4 x 250 hp outboards on the back of something under 50 feet long, pretty crazy right.
Had a silly idea: Why not do a parody of that in wood and small antique outboards.
Here is the plan:
Build the Russel R (a 22 foot motor sharpie by Atkin)
build it in conventional ply on frame instead of lapstrake cedar to save time, money, and avoid too much shame.
replace the recessed motor well with a wide splash well and conventional transom with 3 or 4 larger seagulls, say silver centuries or if you are really blessed kingfishers.
take it to a well known seagull race
also use it for non racing purposes to make fun of people in those ridiculous overpowered sportfishers
This is just a thought exercise, I am not going to build anything of the sort, If I had a magic tree that grew money I might well do it though.
If anyone does this don't do it near the DEA in florida, or bermuda, or look like you are trying to avoid them either. The police there apparently hate/love finding multi engine plywood skiffs going at unreasonable speeds.
