Time to get a building the new 2 cycle devil boat.
I have 2 , 25hp mercs. One is a short shaft and one is long. I had used the shorty on the earlier boat, but as it has been underwater, um, twice, I will use the long shaft with this new boat.
The plan is to make the transom 6" higher and the "breakaway wings" longer. This will give me room to stuff some foam back there, and might let me put a reverse sheer on her. The short shaft used to take a dunking every time the boat slowed down anyway.
The actual bottom , the part in the water @ 30mph, will be the same.
5 feet of 3/8 meranti and 8 feet of quarter inch meranti scarphed together.
Here is the model, taken apart ,of the old boat.I will use occume ply for the sides and deck ,6mm and 4mm, and alaska cedar instead of khaya for stringers, to save weight.
