Being an OB will help immensely w the probable directional problem. Night and day I’ll bet.

Through hulls installed today for the cockpit drain and sink.
Installed the manual wiper too.
Will keep pecking at the list as time permits...
I really have to acknowledge my brother in law Blake.
While he’s not a boater, he was certainly there to tail a sheet of plywood on the table saw or hold something. A
A great help and I truly appreciate both the hand and the company!

Durant you need more red trim.
Suggest a line at lower window level 2” wide. Will make the cabin look much much lower. Trust me. Reversing the hull/cabin color would make the boat look stable like you just added 1000lbs ballast.

I know your not done.
I’d like to see many more boats like this.
You’ll like the 9.9hp engine as you’ll be able to run a low rpm ... very quiet (relatively). Does the engine have outside adjustable carb jets? You can adjust for smoothest running at 1/3 throttle. Thusly you’ll burn less fuel than a 4s (I think) and no low load cool running problems like with a diesel.

You may be building the future trawler yet to come.
Cheers

I think it might be a hard market 😄
Most small boat people want to go fast...
Displacement hulls won’t/can’t plane, but they are super efficient at low speeds with minimal HP needed to attain hull speed.
The Oday Mariner sailboat I used was designed by Phillip Rhodes NA and is a very slippery hull. A 4hp would push it, 6hp would be more than enough, an 8hp 4stroke electric start twin would be perfect. Very quiet and efficient.
I’m using the Johnson 9.9 sailmaster as I own it. They are reliable ole engines and the “sailmaster” model get electric start, 6 amp alternator and extra long shaft. It should be a super low rpm to get hull speed with the 9.9
It’s too bad tooling cost do much. There may well be a market for small, light, trailerable mini trawlers that are super efficient and good for lakes, rivers and canal exploring. As you can see, it’s amazing what you can pack into a small hull. I think the problem would be the small market wouldn’t justify the expense of set up.

There was a guy back in the mid '00s that had a company redoing the Compac 16 and 19 sailboats into mini trawlers. I don't know what ever came of that. They were good little boats and one did some long open water cruises. I think they were using the two stoke E-tech around 9.9 or 15 for the electric start and charging.

Rain day at home so I’m in relaxing and making lists of things to do.
As I think of what’s next on the Mariner, I was chuckling about the dollars spent.
While I didn’t keep a file, this will be close, in Canadian funds:
Sail Boat and trailer. $800
Fiberglass cloth, tape and epoxy resin, about $250
4- 3/8 ply, 2- 1/4 ply, about 100’ of 1x2 pine.. $300
Paint $250
Round ports $100
Lexan windows $200
Bow anchor roller $150
4” foam mattress to use for cushions $150
Material for cushions $100
Porta pottie $100
Thru hulls for sink and cockpit drain $100
Fasteners $50

So...about $2550 to where you see it now, including the trailer.

Still to come:
Engine $$.
Controls and cables $$
Steering system $$
Wooden ships wheel $$

Going with a new 8hp, 4 stroke, electric start and controls would ad about $4000
I’m guessing the steering system and wooden wheel to be in the $600 range.

As I’ll be using my old 9.9 sailmaster, it will be just new, longer cables and the steering system. As such, I’m hopefull that I’ll be launched under $3500

Let’s not talk about hours into the project.....��
