Location: Eustis, FL Yep, lots of choices available in stock plans and of course nearly anything is possible in a custom design (bring your purse). You don't even want my opinion on a Y block Ford, particularly in light of the Windsor and Cleveland availability.
Location: Southern Ontario Canada Altering a Stock plan I would prefer to alter a stock plan.
My main goal on this forum is to get some idea where I can have plans drawn up that suit my needs. A modern 5.7L PCM motor installation is what I put into the last boat and it works superbly so, maybe that is my best shot for reliability.
In the end, it should be a modern (not done before) take on a family sport boat for the cottage.
Epoxy sides with 2 part poly paint, mahogany transom parts with swim platform made of black locust or mahogany or teak (all in stock). We need somthing like this in northern Ontario (Muskoka area) and there is a market for them. If I had plans for a decent hull (which I could lift from a number that I have in stock) and some assurance from an architect that the design would work as planned, I would begin cutting the molds. Location: spain Its not just the engineering that the NA supplies, its the build technique and materials list. My plan is to produce a version of this boat for myself to test and for possible production in small numbers.
I have been looking for the right boat and have determined that the way to do it is to use a hull design that works and then design the interior so that it suits my needs and respects the hull properties as well.
Location: Southern Ontario Canada If I eliminate the need for any steps on the hull, that would make it easier to do myself. The reason for an open concept helm in cottage country, is for the ability to move to any part of the boat when boarding or disembarking. The walk out on the back is ideal for swimming and water sports and really makes this boat adaptable to many uses.

With the same hull, this boat could be made into a version with the bow closed with a straight drive inboard.
Location: Cape Town, South Africa Might not be practical, but if you have your own quay, then I always thought a sort of 'targa' top could be quite between the windshield and the back seats. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
The idea of using solar and human power to drive vehicles is nothing new but each new design that applies these principles is at least a step in the right direction – away from fossil fuels. Perhaps the best part about these designs is that they push the boundaries of current thinking and appropriate green technologies for seemingly everyday uses.
I am not sure how practical this designs are, I mean – is the solar power is ebough to run the boat? Don't forget you would charge it up before you went out as well so you could get most of your traveling done without sun or pedals.

The last time I used this forum was to look for someone to help me with a Gravete Streamliner build.
The moment you start to foll around with the running surfaces and weight allocations, you'll want to have your efforts certified. I love the old 327, with all of it's flaws, but I can think of a lot better bases to start with then nearly half a century old iron. The Y block I have on hand as well as the old 327 and I am not convinced that they are the answer. I should be able to drag skiers and take guests out for a cruise in style with the rumble of a V8.
Building (albeit very slowly!) a boat myself, and would be keen to do something similar when my current project is finished.
Would need to be light enough to lift out of the boat and store next to the quay on clear days, but it could convert an open boat to one that can deal with rain quite quickly and quite nicely -provided you don't get surprised by the weather.

One could envision a small fleet of these replacing rent-a-boats at various tourist destinations around the world.
The solar and pedal option just extends the range to as far as your feet and the sun will let you! Rentacarfirst are cel mai diversificat portofoliu de masini cu reviziile la zi si va asteapta sa va bucurati de experienta inchirierii unei masini.
Built light and strong in our epoxy-plywood composite, view this plywood power catamaran plan below. At the same site, you will find hundreds of pages of tutorials, plans updates, a forum to share ideas about our boats and thousands of pictures - see completed boats and many of the building steps done by builders like you. I did receive some great help and actually completed the boat a few years ago for a customer. I can modify the topsides as far as deck and dash but, the weight distribution would definately have to be calculated. I just do not want to have to take the time to experiment on new programs for designing when there are better people for that job out there. We have so many well meaning newbies that believe that they can design their own just as well as a pro designer.
Still, you get to toss out the pricey gas costs associated with most water cruisers and relax in the sun when the weather is nice and pedal your way to shore when it isn’t.
Sufficient power storage is a must so that pedaling is kept to a minimum and done only in emergencies. The pro knows why he is specifying some running line or other while the DIY person is beguiled by a line that only satisfies his sense of correctness or style.
