Build Log
31" Lobster Boat

I was loaned a 31" lobster boat hull to make a mold off of by another member, this is the build on hull #2. The new hulls are a 1/4" taller at the sheer and 1/4" deeper in the keel than the original.

I sleep Doug, just when nobodys looking. The amount of screwing around I do its a wonder I get anything done lol. Im planning 2 more scratch built hulls, one 28" modified from the plans I used for the 36" and a 38" off the 35' Duffy plan severely modified. Im pretty sure Im going to butcher up a Chuck Steffan hull and Benner that up a little too.
Didnt take me too long did it Harry, theses ones are alot shinier than the 36" right out of the mold.

Brent,
You are some building machine. Are you doing molds for each of the new versions?
