    thanks,
    but those boats were built by my friends using my design and assistance.
    And this is my own yacht I build myself 15 years ago (my design also)
    All boats are wooden

    I couldnt figure out what you use for the interior lining - it looks a bit like cork ?

    first he tried to use cork but then covered that cork by bamboo.
    I don't like both, I offered to use clear wood, but it means much work and time.
    He wants to sail rather than arrange beautiful interior

    Well you said big or small...so here is mine :p Definitely on the wee side of that scale.

    I spent the past 7-8 months converting my Addictor 333 (Bambino) from an Outboard to a Seadoo Rotax powered Jet Drive. 40hp to 110hp(and much more to come).

    It was a lot of work, but has been a very rewarding build. It is my first dabble in the marine world, and I think it has been a success to far.

    I am nearly finished with the build/functionality, but little fine tuning is still needed.

    This winter I plan to finish the cosmetic side of the build, including wake tower, exterior graphics, interior upholstery, swim platform, etc.

    The full build, including over 600 photos, can be seen by following the link in my signature.

    Vera Cruise Boat Build

    I've been working on this for about 18 months. It's a Glen L Marine Vera Cruise eventually to be named "Some Other Time". This is a concept drawing that I am using to guide my construction.


    I've added the picture as an attachment. In case that doesn't work, here is the link to my builder blog

    I'm up to 38 video uploads regarding the Hartley rebuild.
    I got the boat for free back in June 2013 as the lady owner wanted it gone (was a gift for her then husband).
    It had sat in her leaky carport unused for 5 years. It consisted of lots of rotten plywood, fungus, rusted out trailer & a motor that ran but needed work.

    By October 2013 I had it registered & in the water. Now March 2014 I'm just putting the finishing touches on this gorgeous boat.
    It's a Hartley Flareline, 16ft long, made with Huon pine keel & frames, plywood skin & glassed. Probably built in the mid'/late 70's I think.
