Wow! Two new phantoms in one day! Congrats and good luck on your build! Does anyone know how many phantoms are built to date? This has to be one of the most popular home-built hulls out there. Amongst power boats, that is. Anyway, please keep us posted.

Good start but will have to wait for splices to harden on side panels to do anymore.

Ahh, the memories. I remember when I started my PH16. Its been 6 years now. "Sport'N A woody " is still strong as ever. Starting to show her age. Hope to give her a new coat of paint this winter. The only thing I see that youare doing right now is building on the floor. Your back will greatly appreciate it if you were to raise it up about two feet. Other than that you will love it. Super solid and stable hull to fish from. :)

A little saw dust, a little glue, and a lot of love, and she will float.

Glass arrived today. Taped the outside seams. It took Kathy about one hour. Well she use to do it for a living.
Watching others do the work is fun. :lol:
