One of the things about flats boats is the wide variety of designs that are being built these days. Another alternative that some local guys have gone to is to look for one of those magnificent old Challenger hulls (the design was from the fifties, it was the first flats skiff) that can be purchased for very little, then completely re-done after being gutted out. The 15' boat I built wasn't a flats boat but you can estimate a rough cost from my materials. Where is that picture of the guy driving the upside down dining room table with the outboard attached when you need it?? I am repainting the boat right now, and I want to find a more elegant way to handle the problem.
Another question , do you find that there is any problems with rigging the steering the way you have it?


I know the way you have it is how everybody used to do it in the sixties, but then everybody switched to the tilt tube style. Boat and 60hp Yamaha two stroke are 1999 models, push pole included, 55lb thrust trolling motor, Lowrance depthfinder, stainless wheel, white marine seat cushion, poling platform, Lenco trim tabs, and galvanized trailer (hubs and springs were replaced last year). Whether you're researching a new boat, or are a seasoned Captain, you'll find The Hull Truth Boating & Fishing Message Forum contains a wealth of information from Boaters and Sportfishermen around the world. Our boats will even stop small caliber bullets and self-seal when hit by a larger caliber bullet.
Then two gallons of epoxy, 20 square yards of fiberglass and two gallons of foam plus some additives like wood flour and microballons. With 115 hp High Output Evinrude E-tech (20+ hours) with 4-blade SS Prop, Hydrolic Steering.


You might figure on doubling the foam since mine uses three air chambers and only two foam chambers. For dimensional lumber I just used 4 nice pieces of 2x6x10 fir that I ripped and scarfed together for stingers and chine logs. It is a very strong, relatively lightweight hull that brings a certain amount of pride from having been designed and built in my garage.
