Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

I just realized I didn't ever load up pictures of the entire boat. Here are a couple, plus I'll post some more once I get the Talon mounted.

Re: Cvincent's PH18

HI CV. The inserts for the transom bolts need to be a non compressible material. I used structural resin. When I flipped the hull I had the outer skin done to the paint ready stage.

Re: PH18 tournament

I use mine in tournaments. Hawgtown Bassmasters in Ontario Canada. It will not ride as smooth as a deeper V but I have the confidence of self draining cockpit for those big water tournaments where we want to get out to the big smallies.

Re: Mark's PH18 in Toronto

So... dang she rides nice. Ran up the north end of the lake where it turns into a river that leads to a set of locks and had a riot trimmed and jacked up WOT sliding around the bouys like a slalom course.
