Sooo nice to have a garage to work in. I keep having to move mine to keep the iguanas off it. Got mine put together enough to take it out tomorrow, but still need a steering cable, a couple pieces of coosa, and a bunch of gelcoat fixes and fairing

Eh probably a couple 24x24 squares, thereabouts. I was planning on driving up to merritt supply in pompano to get it, do you need anything up there?

The 25 pushed me solo around 26mph. 2 people and gear and a 6 gallon tank pushed us around 23mph. I sold the motor and going with a Yamaha 50 2 stroke tiller. I tore about 300lbs of saturated plywood out too. So I think I’ve been riding heavy.

Good to hear. That 50hp will be sweet! I plan to keep it ultra light so i think the 25 will work. I pulled 150lb of wet foam from my last skiff and it forsure helped. What was the previous cap you pulled off made out of? Ply or foam core? Are you going capless?

Old cap was 3/4 plywood and floor was 3/4” plywood. Lots of woven rovin. I am putting a new foam core cap with no hatches. Very small aft deck and enough deck to cover the tank on the bow. Maybe 8”-12” on the sides
