Some of my boat designs


Just to get some things rolling, I'll post a few pictures of some of my raceboat designs.

The first is a "P" Sport Hydro (12 cell)

I've seen that more then a few times. Very nice and as fast as it gets. I'm pretty sure the fastest P Sport I've ever seen was when Brian Vega ran your boat at the Alaska Nats.

Here are a few of mine

My favorite! - My old beat up Maus O Sport Bardahl. That boat fits me like a glove! It may get retired soon though. Andrew has a new boat one click off of this one that fixes a few quirks.


Latest project! SS1 OPC.


This is the sister ship to Larry Larsons. I built 2 in 1990 and gave one to him. I may have to drag out my templates again. It's been a long time since I've built a boat from scratch and could use a little ca on my fingers!



See ya,
Dick

Doug I knew you had designed a few boats but I really had not seen them. The pictures you put up are beautiful and i am sure they run as well as they look.

That's my design Jim. I used to do a lot of boat building and experimenting about 10 years ago. That boat is the end product of a pile of mistakes. I still had 2 and gave one to Larry Larson who has set every sport straightline record there is with his. O Sport, P Sport and LSH.

I tried mine in 2001 at the saw's with 4 cells but couldn't match the speeds of the little riggers, although it was running in the low 40's.

See ya,
Dick

Offshore Mono


Hi Mike
It's 22" long with a 6" beam. Steve Reesor built a 27" version of it (now owned and raced by LOU) last year.
I plan to increase the deadrise to 25 degrees and build a 31" long version for "Q" Offshore this year.
