Build Log

Buddy Davis Sport Fish


Just beginning to gather thoughts on building the BD. The bow flare makes deck beam construction much different than anything I've done previously.
Will be a "plugging away at it" type of build since I have to do this build in my "outside workshop". Too big for my inside version.

43" X 17" . Plan to use thin material to keep the weight down. Leaning toward the SF version, but have not ruled out the Express version of the SF. At any rate whatever can be removed will be for transport. Just as large a challenge will be the cart to get it to the tide line.

What were the size of your numerous SF builds ? How do you get them to the water?

Building this as a fond memory of my one-time opportunity to run a 65' BD
on a tuna trip.

The Post is a 48" hull, the Hatteras is 38" and the Cobo is a 48"hull
I use 2 serpentine auto fan belts they work great,just drop them in.
I just repowered my Hatteras with 2 Turnigy 3542 800 brushless with 2 Hobbywing EZrun 60a esc,s and I am using 2 Tenergy NiMH 12v batterys part#11616 from allbattery.com and it runs like a dream.

The 17" I mentioned is the flare of the bow. The beam is 13" for the hull I have.

Thanks BD. That is good info for the running gear. Don't think I ever saw any pics of your Cabo. Did you post any?
