Re: looking for a designs
What you want is the simplest of what around here is a commercial boat from the Carolina Skiff. Comes in a variety of sizes and styles but the simple one is the DLX. Basically a lat box with a curved up bow. They are designed for OB. Swipe dimensions from one. You would be in the larger size because of the weight of your engine.
Ran Tan, Liten Kuhling, Vernon Langille, Josef W., Merry Mouth, Imp, Macavity and a quiver of unamed 'yaks.
