    Figo, Just bumped into your build. Looking good! I restored an 18 a few years back. Had a 35 Honda on it. That was almost too much hp. My hull porpoised above about 15 mph. so I had to keep some weight up front. Eventually put wedges at the stern. Also, it's not a stable boat just sitting so keep all weight possible as low as possible. It's a fun boat and where it really shows it's heritage is in a good chop or bouncing over a "trying to break" wave. Get to the Georgetown SC show when you can. There are always some nice Simmons' there.
    keep at it,
    Glenn

    I was at the Georgetown show Last October. I was disapointed there were only two there. I had hoped to see several.

    Yes, there are usually more there. Mine was the Caledonia Yawl (red hull). Good show and good BBQ at the banquet! Glenn H.

    Not the one the wind blew off its stand was it? I don't remember exactly what that one was.

    figo,
    There is a wooden boat show in the fall in Southport, NC. I believe it is the first weekend in November this year. Many SSS's there every year. They even have a 'Best of Simmons' award.
