This is the 34 incher of Mark Scott's: http://home.earthlink.net/~ob_nut2/id26.html


As a side note, the designer of the boat Jerry Dunlap and his wife escaped serious injury the other night when a nasty windstorm knocked over a large fir tree into his house damaging both stories of his home.

Max,

Take a look at this site that was built during the winter. [link=http://home.earthlink.net/~obwof/]WOF Build up[/link] I got bored over winter and built two 34" and five 29" WOF's. The site link above is for building the five 29" WOF's. Four were sold and one kept to have fun with. Believe the information contained on that site should answer most of your questions. Let me know if you have one that is not covered.


Ron,

Thanks for the link. Think I need to remove that page. Not much information there...

I picked my hot wire cutter up from ebay. No matter where you buy from, get some extra wire. It will break at the wrong moment. Been there, done that..


What WOF do you have? The 28/30 is different as it has a double top deck on the spoons. It's not much different from doing the 29", just a few extra steps.

Both OS and K&B are fine motors. An OS set the NAMBA SAW record over 54 mph.
