What should I do for my next project???

With the work on the Outerlimits coming to an end I don't know what I'm gonna do with myself. I'd like to do an old school race hull like a Cig or an Apachee. Or I'm thinking a small cat something like a 32 Skater with outboards. What do you guys think any opinions??

I guess it depends on what you're looking for. There's probably a lot of gratification that comes with restoring an old apache. But i would probably prefer the cat since you already own a big vee. It'd be nice to drive something completely different once in a while. And with the O/Bs you'd have a relatively low maintenance package compared to a restored wave crusher.

thats what i would prefer. Everyone's different though.

I've got some time to think about it. That is what I was thinking about the cat.

DCB 22 with twin 2.5drags. Its your take anywhere lake/river boat that accelerates like drag racer and will hit in the low 100's. Thats what I would do if I already had a large wave crusher and some extra cheese.

22' to small for me. 32' would be barest min. but if I know myself i'll probably wind up with something twice the size.

I hear ya......but there are a lot of rivers and smaller lakes that you could tear a new one on with a small boat. How about an outlaw eagle jet boat with a steel pad and teflon bow. You can run a creek with those at 60mph and jump logs and chit. Im not sure why I am thinking small boats.
