Re: [bolger] Re: Sampan Express?
That's what I meant to say: slop well. I've got to have the motor and everything associated with it sealed off as well as possible from the people in the boat and everything associated with them. I also want to exclude as much of the engine noise as well as I can, so it'll need a box of some kind with a cover or hatch.Can anybody point me toward a Bolger design with such attributes?Davy

Dave Gerr's "The Nature of Boats" has a section explaining how to build the transom and slop well depending on motor HP. Phil did not like motor wells as he thought outboards belonged on transoms.
