    Great boat. I'm making a 14 at the moment. Well, it's made, I'm painting now and adding metalwork and hatches now.

    Love to see some pics and hear a review once you get her launched.

    It was on my short list of designs before I chose the Jericho Bay Skiff. I'll start a thread on that soon.
    The Tango has those sponsons on the arse end and I would want a trolling motor in that area in addition to the main motor so that kills that design for me as the sponsons would be in the way.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    What are the perceived advantages of that type of stern design?
    Money may not buy happiness, but it can buy a boat that will pull right up next to it!

    Stops the boat squatting as you increase speed and, therefore, gets you up on the plane quicker and with less horsepower.

    What length are you thinking? In your area, the longer the better.

    I’m actually thinking of the smallest of the line, 12’. I’ve got a great motor for it, and it’s light weight would make it easy to haul up on then dock.
    I use her solely for the protected creeks close to the dock.

    When we want to go somewhere we’ve got a 24’ Superboat on the lift.

    Had an interesting development on this possible build. My canvas guy has a CNC plotting table. It’s more than big enough for a sheet of Okume ply. He thinks he can download the PDF plan sheet into the program and draw the parts on the ply, or if I want onto Tyvec or Mylar for patterns. That would save some serious time.
