Default New boat

This is what happens when I'm given a classic mahogany boat. This is a Miss Adventure kit heavily modified to boogie. The modifications include steps built into the hull, a swap out of the cheesy electric motor for a Dynamite .32 marine, and a proper hardware swap. I just fired the motor today, and it sounds great! It should surely move this boat right along! I've included some pics, let me know what you think.

Be careful driving that thing as those old stepped monos were a handful to drive in the full-scale versions.

Very good and an excellent visual, congratulations.[sm=thumbup.gif]

Will you post the video to see this beast.

Want to know more details as the length of the boat, their total weight and what prop you are using.

The length of the boat is 28 inches and it has an X-440 prop on it. I haven’t weighed the boat yet, but it seems very light and it sits nice and high in the water, should hit plain quick! I will post a video as soon as I get to the lake for the first run.

Ron,
I was thinking of putting some cracker box scaggs on this for turning, do you think this would be effective on this style hull?

I would look at no more than a single skeg right in front of the step, though it can't be too big or it will cause problems in the turns. Stay away from transom mounted turn fins as well

I finely got a chance to run this boat, GPS said 52mph. I need to add the scag to it, as it is VERY unstable and hard to turn. Ran it in flat water at a friends house in Texas, he thought I was nuts when I swam out to retrieve it in 63 degree water. Gee, thats the water temp here in NY in July. LOL

Good afternoon,
I am building my first wooden boat the "Miss Adventure" and I have been wondering as to how to finish the Step in the Hull? The directions are unclear and I have not found any discussions on the forums.

Any assistance would be great.
Thank you in advance
