    Has anyone here built/installed a tunnel onto their gheenoe themselves? I was considering doing so to my 13. Any input, soecs, suggestions, tips please! I have a decent amount of experience with fiberglass... but have not done much with boats.

    On 13'er I do not believe it would be a good idea.

    Personal opinion...not worth the effort.
    Better off keeping hull as is to maintain displacement to float shallow.
    Building tunnel adds weight and decreases buoyancy
    by the volume previously displaced by the tunnel.

    Not that there aren't tunnel 'noes out there...

    Search the user name "fastglass" or something. He bought gramps' LT and made a tunnel for it. If not here, try customgheenoe.
