Of course. Why not? Though there’s the real question! Do that and because it will be much shorter (up to a third shorter, depending on where you make the cut) you will have a much slower vessel (speed:length ratio). If it’s got one, you will also need to move the cockpit fwd to balance the […]
Help! 3.4m dinghy inflatable what size outboard should i buy** use on thames lakes rivers and canals?
When I had a rigid hull GRP dinghy of the same size which I used to launch on the Thames mostly at East Molesey a Mariner 4HP (identical except for paint and badges to a Mercury 4HP) was more than enough, even with four people on board and cruising upstream against the current flow. An […]
At sea a ship may only pump bilges through an Oily Water Separator at less than 15/ppm residual oil content. Not ever at or near land or protected areas.
For a 60ft? No. Unless you don’t have any boating experience. It’s not one of those things where you can just complete your boaters safety course and buy a large boat and expect that all you do is fire it up, push it up to full heading, and just spin the wheel around. Which this […]

NO manufacturer is going to put a rating on a boat motor that isn’t at least 20% less than the what the boat can handle and they probably put in a safety margin of closer to 50%. 44 is only 10% over max so I suspect from a safety stand point you are well within […]
The hp rating is the maximum “recommended” hp for that hull, the key word being “recommended”. This recommended rating is derived from a formula developed by the USCG, and is recognized by all states, and also by Transport Canada. A couple of points- 1. Except in Florida, this hp limit is recommended, not legislated. Florida […]
We are Ohio State fans and recently bought a boat that is the Ohio State colors. Need a clever name for the boat to go with the OSU theme.?
Buckeyeness. Football A-GO-GO. What’s You Look’n At? “O” (official red and cropped edges, top center) How Sweet It Is. (underneath, smaller red letters)
No you will not survive – it takes years of planning, very large expenditure of funds to design the boat, and a lot of practice and support crews.
