Good action!! Thanks for posting

By the way, in the not too distant past, there was a boat so much like yours for sale in B.C Canada. Ex-missionary boat, same profile although it has a outside steering station just in front of the pilot house in a modified bridge configuration. I attempted to locate the advertisement but to no avail. Sold I guess as well it should, it is a peach of a boat.

I'm getting very close to 60, but I feel I have one more boat build left in me.

It has to have a work boat look, rather than looking like a replica . I was planning to buy a hull moulding with decks , and build the pilot house and cabin superstructure in plywood .

Home builds get to use non- compliant engines: I was thinking Cummins series c 450 maybe for a 36' hull at 8-9 tons: should give about 15 kts wot.


Its a big lot of work which ever way you cut it.
