Re: CT22 - Center console Cat 22 - Question

One bit of magic for best comfort is a bit extra under the front legs, but not so much as to cutoff circulation.

If u build it; you'll get lots of advice.

Re: CT22 - Center console Cat 22 - Question

I think the light plywood is for the board that goes around the deck and I believe this is what Jacques refers to as a fairing.

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

I am a little concerned about what you want your GT27 to do. Is it to be a displacement cruiser, or a semi-displacement cruiser, or do you want a full planning cruiser? We'll be running at displacement speeds. Wish I had more experience with midsize outboards to know how much of a difference the po...

Re: GT27 Build (Wes K)

Wes now that I am back at the cabin on the Mississippi, we are on vacation, I looked at the Study Plans and your motor choices again. I am a little concerned about what you want your GT27 to do.

Re: FS17 from Kit Build

Make the clamping board 11" or so, that way 2" down starts holes, 8" away is holes or at 10" and one inch hole clearance. Otherwise, the clamping board of 10" can be offset 1" below the transom top of too narrow already.

I'd prefer it all the way up..
