I would assume the stinger would have a similar deadrise. Have you looked into this? Is it a concern for you? Thanks.

Yeah both are 24 degrees. The Chris Craft has 6Ē more beam than the 38 scarab but I think the issue is overstated, Iíve been anchored up fishing with guys with 302 scarabs, converted midnight express and 40 Excaliburís which I think is the same as this stinger hull. Never noticed anything unusual about the boats attitude.
Maybe I just havenít been in the right conditions.
If you build the 38, I would be very interested in how you tackle the top cap.
I wouldnít have attempted the project if I hadnít known of mould in the works locally.
I have an Ď82 corsa that I cut the deck off from the helm forward, I hated the way the deck sloped but it would an interesting project if I could get the deck right. I think a lot of people here would love to see you do a CC.

RR I was thinking that “home brew” boat snack you described would make good grouper chum.

Even underwater I think the smell would scare them away.
It scares the Hell outta me.

Itís easier if you can keep part of the deck to build off of like this cuddy removal.



Iíve seen it done all the way around at the rub rail but you end up with a low freeboard

Some decks are similar enough to what you want to end up with that they work. This midnight express hull has a deck from a 43 scarab and a console from a pursuit. 440 yanmars detuned to 350 hp to help keep xr’s alive.

It would be interesting to see what could be done with some interior bling vs bare bones fishing machine without clashing with the old school lines.
