Default Deep V build

Hey my name is Gabriel and i am 13 and planning on building a deep V boat powerd by a homeliete 26cc weedwacker engine. First of all does anyone have any plans for a deep V about 42-48" long. If not ill make my own. What is the largest size boat a 26cc weedwacker engine can power and i want it to go a good speed? What size boat is the max size? Its going to be made out of wood then fiberglassed and epoxy painted. I was thinking about 46" long 5" high and 12" wide, will that work...please tell me if i should be diffirent. I will start this project when i get my weedwacker and fix my tmaxx. This is my first boat so i dont know what parts i should get like driveshaft, prop, rudder etc... What type of wood should i use what type of glue? What thickness wood? Oh and how do i waterproof it?
Thanks

gabe3366 , Do you have building skills? You can get a Kit for $59.00 at Zippkits. http://zippkits.com/~zippkits/index....roducts_id=260
All instructions in a 45 page photo booklet. The kit is pre cut on a CNC machine. With a list of glue and tools needed. The cost of spruce air plane plywood, you'd probably spend that alone getting wood. This kit is already cut.

the boat here http://www.modelpowerboat.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=7
its a 72" offshore mono is that the same as a deep v ?  ...it looks like what i want to build...i could just resize the plans for me
 
and yes i have seen those zippkit plans and have thought about them but i really want more of a deep v and make it my self...it seems kinda like cheating and taking the fun out of it
 
i do have building skills but i have never made a boat before....my dad has lots of tools, etc... and he could help me design the plans as he is a architect
 
thanks

You can forget FAST with a weedwacker.

If using a weedwacker .. 40" is long enough.

(As longer means heavier .. thus lesser speed)

I would go with one of these: http://www.modelpowerboat.com/downlo...?do=file&id=84 or http://www.modelpowerboat.com/downlo...p?do=file&id=6
I wouldn't suggest downsizing the 72", it would be too narrow in my opinion after scaling it down. Doug

Doug, Is not that your boat plans blown up from 48-72 inches on the http://www.modelpowerboat.com/downlo...p?do=file&id=7 site?
I know that someone on here took your boat plans and resized them to make a 72" boat! There is a thread on here some where as well about it.

They are my plans, but it's not just one of the smaller boats scaled up. A number of years ago someone asked me to design a 6 foot offshore style boat. By the time I finished the design he had lost interest, so I just put it on the web for anyone to download. I've never built one myself. Doug

The PROWLER mono is a great boat to build. I highly recomend it,..even to an inexperianced builder. It can be built with basic power tools. There are plenty of guys here in the forums that are more than willing to give advice and help out,including me.I built one sized up to 60".The complete hull cost me less than $50 from start to finish.

Doug,...the Boat rips!! Still looking and waiting for that 6717/3 to try,....

i thought about it I might go with this boat
http://www.modelgasboats.com/Resourc...8%22_Deep_Vee/

but i really do want something more like a deep v or a ciggerate boat as i will be driving it in pretty rough waters at my cottage
a 48" deep V or offshore mono would be great for me

thanks

if you go to our website www.bigalboats.com then check out our videos on youtube then you can see roughly how fast a weedy motor will go
the motor is off a redmax trimmer so it is a zenoah motor that we put in a 40 in.prototype,,, its a fun little boat.

I am a newby going to build my first Deep vee hull 45.5” x 13.5” x 9”. What to use a homelite 26cc w/clutch. Can you recommend a prop size and pitch, that will get me safely running on calm water pond. I want to use inline shaft holder with prop followed by rudder.

any recommendations would be helpful

thank you

Size of the hull sounds about right. Make sure you leave 5" between the engine rails.I usually go about 5 1/8" ,because I found that when finished and coated it becomes a little tight between them sometimes.An inline is alright to use if not racing and a Prather 275 prop is a good starting prop for a Homelite. You can try better props if you go to a Zenoah engine later. If I remember right the Homelite 26 cc has a slanted backplate which makes it harder to fabricate mounts ,but it can be done.What plans are you using for the hull ? There's a good one on Model Gas Boats site.Go down to the Prowler or Wasabi 1300 plans.
https://www.modelgasboats.com/forum/...ome-mono-plans
Here's a video of the Wasabi 1300 with a Zenoah 26cc in it.
