RE: 4th boat build. Mini-Kaze Stepboat

RE: .40-.46 build plans

What you are seeing is the angle . If you were to make that line 90* to the deck and not shorten it it would be longer than 2" . The formers are 2" high .

RE: what size boat

Make the deck about 2 inches wider than the prop you are going to use . When you scale the plans up let the other dimensions come out as they may . It usually ends up that the lenght is a little more...
