    There is no such thing as a perfect design.

    There is no such thing as a perfect material.

    Sooner rather than later, Tug, you've either got to shut up or *do* it.

    If you'd bought a set of Benford plans years ago when you first started posting here, you'd have forgotten the cost by now and you'd have the hull *done*.

    its getting done as we speak in fact im about to head out and do a couple more frames.
    done!~ almost...:D have now many frames and strongback- tugboat engine (petter 20 hp @1500 rpms 2:1 gear.) This engine is NOT a standard 20 hp- its a workhorse!. has a huge flywheel- and pushed a 34 ft boat with a 24 inch prop using a 1:1 gear.

    the hull might be plated up just after c-mas, have the money- but the weather slows it down. three feet of snow likely. if I can handle the will be done by spring. (The hull at least).

    it finally getting done..
