          (BTW, Gregg, I'm taking another look at Tennesee as a project - do you know
          if the side planks are 3/8? I'm looking into MDO and it doesn't come any
          thinner than 3/8 inch. Also, any thoughts on taking out the rocker aft and
          going to about 25 hp for Tennessee for maybe 15-18 mph?)

          Don, I don t know, but I would have to guess that Tennessee is at LEAST 3/8 , since the Sneakeasy is. I think the rocker aft for planing should be less than 2

            Don,

            I don't know, but I would have to guess that Tennessee is at LEAST 3/8",
            since the Sneakeasy is.

            I think the rocker aft for planing should be less than 2 degrees, according
            to Dave Gerr. On something as long as the Tennessee, even less might be
            better.

            But, I get only about 20 mph on 25 hp on the Sneakeasy and thought about
            this last weekend. I think it's all skin friction - if you put any weight
            at all up forward, it will slow down. I think it drops the bow and puts
            more "skin" in the water. The bottom itself is not really very smooth and
            slick - I really need to turn it over, and fair and paint with something
            hard and slick like epoxy.

            Point is, on these boats, I think a good bottom is important.

            I m certainly no expert, but I would guess wetted surface area is far more influential than finish, if finish is within reason. We are talking turbulent flow

              I'm certainly no expert, but I would guess wetted surface area is far more
              influential than finish, if finish is within reason. We are talking
              turbulent flow here - when I raced (much slower) sailboats, we were careful
              about the bottom finish and it made maybe 1/8 - 1/4 knot difference - quite
              a bit at 3-4 knots over 10 -12 miles, but not much if you are already going
              15-16 knots (and not racing).

              You are probably right, but it seems it ought to make some difference...?

                  Thanks, Don, you ended my search! I also discvered that the beam of
                  Idaho is only 63". Limits your interior options, not to mention the
                  aesthetics.

                  I notice Tennessee carries 72" of beam. What kind power/speed
                  properties are expected as she's drawn? What's your goal in the bottom
                  mod?

                    Joe,

                    Chuck Leinweber (on this list) has built Tennessee, and may jump in and
                    answer some of your questions... (help, Chuck!).

                    I only know Tennessee has a bit of rocker toward the stern, and is
                    advertised for low-hp (9.9 typically) engines. This makes her pretty much a
                    displacement boat with some extra speed potential for being light and
                    narrow. That's 7 knots plus the light/narrow factor, I would guess 8.5-9.0
                    knots (9.8 - 10.4 mph).

                    I have built a few small boats (and bought or studied more than I will
                    admit!), and a real planing hull is almost flat to even a bit "hooked" at
                    the stern in order to keep them more level and minimize the bow-up plowing
                    that precedes rising to plane. Big power boats use hydraulic trim plates to
                    hook the bottom going up to plane, then trim toward flat for cruising on
                    plane. For a simple boat like Tennessee, flat is probably close enough to
                    give her some planing potential if enough power is installed. Rule of thumb
                    here is one hp per 50 to 100 lb weight. If we assumed 75 lb/hp for
                    Tennessee and 1500 lb, we are at 20 hp just to sustain planing, and probably
                    35 hp needed to acheive planing initially. Based on Gregg's experience with
                    the Sneakeasy (which is flat) I'm probably still a bit optimistic. BUT, I
                    have said I would settle for 11-12 knots (12.6 - 13.8 mph) or so with two
                    aboard if not redlining the engine and just plowing along.

                    So, I'll just leave the question out here: has anyone clocked a Tennessee
                    with 25 hp installed, "stock" or with a flat bottom?
