    Thanks for the reply,

    I'm after something that is perhaps a little more unique then offered by the above.

    Time.

    Gentlemans runabout

    Here's an acad drawing of a 24' runabout that I worked up last summer for coldmolding to keep maintenance costs down. Similar concept to yours.Originally to be inboard 165 hp diesel , but suitable for outboard as well

    To all,

    I have done some modern hull forms in the classic style with the Cherubini Classic 20, and Cherubini in turn has modified that hull into a Classic 24. You can see more details on my website at:

    Cherubini Classic 20: http://www.sponbergyachtdesign.com/CC20.htm

    Cherubini Classic 24: http://www.sponbergyachtdesign.com/CC24.htm

    And I did a redesign of a Chris Craft Cobra, putting a deep-V bottom on the original hull design. This boat performs beautifully. The story of that boat is here: http://www.sponbergyachtdesign.com/ChrisCraftCobra.htm

    I am also working with a builder to produce a 19' retro-styled speedboat, to be supplied in a kit. All the sapele (African mahogany) parts are machined on a 3-axis milling machine so that it will be a truly Tab-A, Tab-B construction. All connections to be doweled. More information will be forthcoming later this year. The kit will be available with either inboard V-drive or I/0 drive.

    Eric
