Default Black Widow 2.0

Hey guys ! I am starting a new boat , it's going to be a 26cc CY powered step hull . The hull is 24 x37x3 I plan on running a 14x7 three blade prop , with the possibility of a tuned pipe. just getting started so I have a long way to go. I will try to do a post pics as I make progress..

Here are a few pics


I am shooting for around between 25-28 pounds .. It was a toss up between the cy engine and the 76cc engine I had. I went with the cy since I have a prop hub for it and ease of starting. plus I think the hull mat be too small for that powerplant .

Decided to mount it jug down for a more low pro look and lower CG. I plan on this being a lightning bolt !

This is a six-year-old thread, the OP hasn’t been back to the forum in almost a year. I wish he’d give an update, but I doubt he’ll ever see this thread again.
