Hi! I made a Dumas PT boat a couple of years ago, the wood hull needs a lot of work and makes heavier the boat. If you don't mind I have some comments to you. Be careful when building the main deck the cabins and turrets must be done directly where they fit (instructions doesn't say that). The stuffing box of the hardware comes smaller than it is marked in the plans you will have to get one with the proper size, and the shaft need to be hold too in a place near its end to the motor other way it will vibrate to much.
