New to the forum and had a question that I was hoping to get some insight on from the vast fount of knowledge and experience here
I'm getting ready to build a small plywood on frame outboard runabout with a low-deadrise warped bottom design. I will be converting the design to inboard jet drive utilizing the powertrain from a 2004 Honda R12X PWC - 12' 6" hull length with a 5' beam and I will be adding a drive extension box to the transom to move the jet pump assembly back about 18" aft of the transom.
I recently started to seriously think about modifying the design into a Mod-VP style tunnel hull with center pod (similar to the Southwind Tunnel Dragster or Placecraft hulls that were popular in jet drag boat racing circles, which were the models that I have drawn from for this project)
I have a pretty good idea on how to incorporate the tunnels into the build but I haven't been able to glean much info pertaining to appropriate dimensions of the tunnels such as width, depth, angles, etc....
If anyone has any resources or experience that might help me with this issue that would be greatly appreciated!!
Thank you in advance
