Yeah way cool concept. It would be a fun boat with most any high HP engine and propulsion, but the prospects for the jet as Bolger described sound like real adventure.
The isometric version looks more like a garvey hull w' a cutwater that becomes a clam skiff like shoe than the sketch from MAIB which I somehow thought was more MicroTrawler/Retriever like with a deeper box cutwater.
The isometric no doubt tells a more accurate story. So I take back using Retriever plans as a guide for scantlings and frame spacing to build Wolfpack. Perhaps one of Glen-L's Garveys or one of their dory work boats.
Really neat sketch Bruce.
