- Jun 2, 2008Hi.
Just found this group, and thought you may be interested in what I built.
I bought a set of "Hope" plans a while back, and built one.....with
She ended up at 30ft 8" OA, and a little higher in the topsides ( I
think about 4 1/2").There was no change to the beam.
The bottom was 1/2" sheet ply, and the topsides were 2 layers of 3/16"
ply ( double diagonal).
Then I put the fuel tanks fwd under the floor, and hid a 90hp ETEC
Evinrude in a well .
Oh, yes, did a bit of a redesign on the cabin - slightly more modern.
Anyway, all good, nice boat that cruises at 18knots - flat out about
22. Handles and rides very well etc.
Want more details / pics?
