Good luck on your project! Do you have any schematics or basic drawings of your boat? It would be interesting to see what you are doing! Are you going to use honeycomb panels or use ribs? Did you see the unfinished alluminum project on this website? I think it was 40 ft and built with honeycomb bottom, lots of room inside. I think they are trying to sell it? It is a beautifull boat.

Thought some of you might like to see the final product (why do prototypes always take twice as long and twice as much $$ ???)











Boat finaled out at 10,350lbs (dry) and carries 450 gallons on fuel (2700lbs +/-) for a total weight of 13,000lbs loaded.

Hit 58.9 mph with the twin 350's. Although the speed was about where we expected (I had hoped for 60+) the boat felt as if too much hull was still in the water. It never got really "light". I think that there are 2-5 more mph in the hull.

We'll see!

Who's "we"? What's a "thunderboat row"? Any pics of the 50kt cat patrol boat?

Sorry for the ignorance....
