Build Log

aquacraft ep1 outboard skiff


I'm scratch building an outboard skiff for either a single or twin ep1's. the motor/motors will be mounted on a bracket. So far I've spent about 4 hours making frames and skinning the hull. Its not gunna be anything fancy, just a fun project. I just gave it two layers of glass inside and out over the weekend.

thank you for the compliments, It's 29.5" with an 11 inch beam. the transom is around 4.5" tall. Tollytime, your drawing is about the look I am after! I'm not sure if I' going to close in the cap but it would defiantly hide any wiring. Also, when I build the deck it wont have a step up in the bow, their is plenty of room for a 7.2v battery as it is. BTW that's some good design work on your end, I'm impressed!

Kyle, looks like you'll beat me to the finish line. Looks great.

Tolly, what SW are you using for the drawings, they look great.

Yeah, but hull #2 out of your moulds won't take you any time at all!

Kyle is moving quickly on this one-

That's the dilemma, when I get free time, work on hull #2 or my hull #1
