    [QUOTE=John Martin;4273538] I was browsing harbor launch photos and ran across an image that I thought was gorgeous. Looks like a Bolger Sneakeasy, but probably the nicest example I have ever seen. There was no information on the photo but not sure it could be anything else. I think it is on Lake Tahoe. Shows what can be done with a little bit of hard work to even simplistic boat. Bolger knew what he was doing for sure.

    The steering wheel on Bolger's SNEAKEASY was in the middle of the boat, not as far forward as in FRIED EGGS II. The weight of the driver and passengers is much better distributed here, which would avoid the kind of bow-up problem seen in post #2 of this thread. I like this version of the boat too.

    Just a bit of context here:
    This Sneakeasy is an electric conversion. It has an extra 500 pounds of batteries under the front seat, and a Briggs Etek (~3hp equivalent) pushing it. Made 11 MPH; not sure how many people at that speed.

    Supercool. I'd like to see more about the outboard drive unit mated to the DC motor.
    No adversary is worse than bad advice.

    That project is long over (not mine, either).

    However, this is the same basic idea, but with a much more powerful motor:
