Re: Best hull for Hobie Mirage drive?
I love this thread, I really want to do a fishing boat for two, truck toppable (80 lbs) roomy for two people next winter. I would like to mate the drive to a wineglass wherry hull, based more on the looks and not the hull performance.
Thoughts? the question in the thread was kind of broad. I have been on the hobie outback and like the drive, but I am used to my canoe and the need to have beer and tackleboxes scattered around. I hope I dont offend anyone, but a rotomolded boat has no soul. Granted my coleman 15s have very little soul and it has taken 15 years to develop.
freshwater lakes, trout, beginner building skills
In fact, if you can saw a penciled line, apply glue, drive nails, and bring a modest measure of patience to the task, you can build and launch a smart and able craft in as few as 40 work hours. You need not be driven by lack of tools, materials, skills, or time to abandon in frustration a project you conceived in a spirit of pleasurable anticipation.
