John,
I want a wood boat.

But not trawler size. What I want is Tang or Marcia in the Atkin boat plans list/site/catalogue.[http://www.atkinboatplans.com/] [/URL]Would be a trailer boat so I would want it in plywood. But doubt it could be cost effective to ship it out to Vancouver BC. You probably know how best to do that.

I'm having troubles. The link is't hot but if you look it up look under "inboard cruisers. Converting to OB power may not be the best but putting batts, fuel and water fwd may balance things out well enough.

I know of nothing else that compares to these boats. I have a 60hp OB and think these boats will cruise at about 12 knots w this power. No other boats other than the 26' Handy Billy come close to what I want. A light, efficient and trailerable OB that can take some fairly nasty water.
