Durant F,
Very nice. And I like your engine on the transom. Easier to work on, better maneuverability, less fumes and more room in the boat aft .. lots.

Thats a cool project, makes me rethink the times when people offered me these types of boats for free or cheap.

I do the same thing with motorcycles, it seems after a couple years I have enough mix and match pieces and parts to put one together. Its very therapeutics for me.

Charlie, there are so many deals on old sailboats on trailers.
They are fine, very efficient hulls.
I paid less than half of what the trailer alone would cost new with the boat on it and have the mast, boom and sail to sell. Bonus was the trailer had new tires and even a new spare.

Durant you probably won't be using over 5 hp but you can cruise underloaded most of the time w a gas engine if the carb is adjusted for best mixture at your cruise speed. Not like diesels.

A prefer the older 2 strokes as they have both high speed and low speed mixture adjustable needle metering. But often that means at two throttle settings you'll be spot on but not so much everywhere else. I usta cross Georgia Strait w my 17' OB cruiser running an old dull red Johnson 35. I got the boat trim-loaded right, adjusted the low speed jet needle and ran 10 knots burning little fuel w little noise and vibration. Nice ride.

But w the fixed jet carbs you're stuck w what comes w it.

I think, after you use it a bit, you will build the bow up a bit.
