I promised the guy building the boat that I'd post this on several of the boards that I frequent. I have a 1970 Boston Whaler that I bought a couple of years ago from a guy in Greenville, NC. Well, after seeing (and falling in love with) the Chaos flats boat, I was hellbent on getting one.
I bought a Johnson 50hp freshwater engine, a perfect little center console, rigging, cables, electronics and some of the misc stuff that I'll need for the build. There wa a story in Florida Sportsman about 20 yrs ago about a guy and his young son that took a 13 ft whaler for a few days of fishing and camping in the keys. The foam for the cooler and fish box is some sort of a 3" foam that is impermeable to epoxy and resin.
He also leveled out that God awful curve in the floor with structural foam, then vaccuum bagged it all together.
Second picture (looking forward) is the recessed rigging tubing in the floor and the grey drain tubing for the bow.
Excess foam was cut out, and the floor was leveled with a very slight contour for drainage.
The rudder is in a bad spot, steering sucks so I'm working on that and will get a video this weekend. These electric motors have some amazing power, never would have though they were this strong. I am waiting on a new rudder that will place the leading edge behind the props, it should do the trick.
First test which was multiple back and forth high speed runs but few were at full throttle.
I was testing with one pack per motor because I was afraid the extra weight would slow it down.
I think with 4 batteries total I should get an honest 15 minutes run time with mostly high speed running.
But I am not sure which motors should be used or if at all feasible with electric power, they have quite large electric brushless motors in their webpage and if not possible with outboards I might be interested in trying inboard brushless like your project but I am in need for some advise in regards to which motors, feasibility ..
In this build I bought the little scale outboards first then found a hull that matched in scale size. If outboards could be used I am ready to buy THREE units off them why do you think is not feasible? IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TOOLS TO MAKE THE MOUNTS TO FIT ELECTRIC MOTORS to the gas outboards, than there is no need to move on from there.


Quick video, it sucks because I was alone so I just set the camera on the lean post of my boat.
The new rudder works great, the only thing I need to figure out now is the over heating ESC.
Location: United States I am interested in taking a 14' jon and adding a 2' tunnel turning this flat bottom into an aluminum cat? Location: United States I would like to turn a 14x4 jon to a 14x6 by adding a 2' tunnel through the bottom of the boat. Location: Galveston, Texas cat or vented tunnel What will you be using the boat for?
Location: United States I was thinking that a scooter cat would be more buoyant than a flat bottom due to its catamaran style and the fact that we made it wider from 4' wide to 6' wide. Location: Louisiana Good thread I have thought of a tunnel boat as well but only for speed. Location: United States is there a big difference between marine grade aluminum and regular aluminum sheets.

I know that 5052 bends a lot easier then say 5086 but I believe 5086 actually welds better then 5052 but it doesn't maybe bend as easily as 5052.

Location: United States possibilities I am really fascinated and extremely interested in these aluminum boats. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
From the crisp mornings of late spring through the hazy evenings of August, a boat on the bay is the place to be.And how better to cruise than in a boat built by one of the bay’s own builders? 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.
Because the rudder is in front of the props it throws air into the props causing massive cavitation. I would really want to power it with a three large outboard set up, if neccessary, using three gas outboard complete lower units but with a large brushless in the place of the gas motor maybe like the one in the pic at the bottom of this text. That model is big and will be heavy and three of these motors should push it to 50 MPH if you can get big enough lower units and props. I'm not sure what is meant by a vented tunnel but the idea was to run the tunnel from the engine all the way to the bow.


I was told that a lot of tunnel boats are square shaped when a round tunnel is better for less cavitation but I'm only wanting to go fast. This guy basically takes a full sheet brakes the sides and cuts what is the bottom plate of the boat and pulls the sides in to where he wants them. It's been over a year now and I still haven't built mine yet but I must say I have learned a ton from reading online and I'm glad i have because i would have already made some real costly mistake if I had jumped into it. A handful of companies, on the Eastern and Western shores, design and build custom boats that are worthy of any body of water.
We're also adding built in drink cooler and dry storage as well as a couple of built in tackle lockers. And because its not in the prop wash it just doesn't turn the boat will unless the boat is moving at a good clip. I think your biggest problem is going to be finding outboards that big that are scale looking. My 54" Fountain has two Leopard 5692 (1340 Kv) motors and the boat is so fast its hard to keep it in the water.
I think the company is enjoined from selling PlasTeak in the US, which is disappointing as it was about $20-35 less per sq ft.
I have the ability to run two batteries in parallel per motor which won't increase the speed but will double the run time. The gas outboard you have pictured above will work and I believe they make little Mercury cowlings for them. I've studied a lot of pictures and the way some lay there boat out and this is mainly the mudboat guys but they have some dam good ideas. The low cost flat bottom boat you just purchased is as buoyant as you can get, anything you do to it will make less so. Obviously they creating these boats out of composite or fiberglass but is there a business in creating these small boats out of aluminum. Those innovations are based upon 3 decades of experience providing you the best possible product, a Legendary product custom built for you based upon your dreams! They still design sailboats, but today their flagship powerboat, which they design and build under the Eastport Yacht Co.
