State Series ----> Cabin Clam Skiff
- I've been reading the State Series and Tennessee somewhat desultorily,
and now wish that I'd been mofre observant :-)
This is possibly just idle curiosity, as I plan to build a Sneakeasy
later this winter, but...
Does anyone remember any discussion as to how large these sharpies
must be (at a minimum, in both length and width)to allow standing
headroom (6'2" in my case, 1.88m)??? I've looked at Cabin Clam Skiff
(why didn't PCB name that "Saloon Launch"??? as John E. calls it :-)
and wondered about it's potential for a "cheapish" Florida
I have an available 4-cyl I/O drive, free, which is likely to be
overkill for it, but would run more cheaply than a 65-100hp outboard,
esp at 6-8 kts, which is my preferred cruising speed if I don't have
anywhere important to go.
If you remember such a discussion, I'd appreciate a pointer to it, or
even an approximate date.
