I saw her about 7 weeks ago while visiting Larry and Lena ,she looked good. Take your urban assault trailer up for a bit and do some recon on her. You did a really good job on that, I'm impressed!

Non-Conservative Boat

I was very impressed w the first "deep Vee" boat/hull designed by Raymond Hunt.
It was named "Moppie" and won the Miami-Nassu offshore powerboat race in 1961.

The drag from the high deadrise "deep V" increased fuel consumption mucho. I set about to design a boat that had the soft riding characteristics w/o the fuel burn penalties. This was the result. All plywood and built light. 90% of the hull was 3/8ths Canadian marine Plywood. Cabin was 1/4" and glass was poly.
28' X 9'2". Power was a 55hp Johnson 3cyl OB.

The other pics are of the model I built from bulsa wood in college.
Built the boat in the Queen Charolette Is. in 71. My teaching job at Masset went poof so I struck out for Juneau.
Built the cabin in Juneau and went to Glacier Bay, Endicott Arm including Ford's terror and many other local places.
She was a good boat w wonderful directional stability and turned almost level. Unlike my current OB boat. She had one big flaw. Her wonderful performance went So when loaded anything but real light. I carried an 11" pitch prop for long runs needing lots of fuel and switched on the run to her normal prop of 13" pitch.
She was actually a multi-hull. Somewhere between a trimaran and a Cathedrial hull. Due to the hull shape she was plenty strong enough for a structure including only one frame.

And this is a example of a "one off" with, IMO, no real value except for the initial owner.

Looks like a fun little boat for tooling around the harbor.

Notice there's a 30' Tollycraft sedan in next slip over in your photo!

Art,
Just guessing at her underwater lines ect but I think she’d handle some rough stuff too.
Could be a wet ride on deck but who’d be on deck in nasty?
The whole boat looks very well done.

Says the’re built in a mold. Must be FG.
Less draft than Willy.
Never seen one before.
Looks like a day boat but don’t know what’s below decks. Didn’t look that far.
Thanks Spy
