I was out in an ideallic tropical anchorage last week, when the ugliest boat I ever saw pulled in. It's lines reminded me of the shuttle from star trek. It was a cold molded cat with amazing space and ventilation. She can make 10kts with only two 9.9hp o/b Yamahas @ 0.5 gph each!
The owner is building another, except this one will be epoxy/glass over 1/8" aluminum
....WITH A MAST
FOR SAILING TOO! I think I'm in love with the idea!
The real kicker
was watching it pull up to the beach (while I was 100yds off) and plow right up at low tide, the owner WALKED off and tied a line to a mangrove root, then went exploring.
So, my esteemed and knowledgable Internet
think-tank.... What say you about building with epoxy/glass over aluminum
? I've never heard about it before! I am thinking about selling the mono, and building one of these for myself!
