    Hello, I would like to build a very large skiff using the construction methods developed by Renn Tolman. Mr Tolman has plans for up to 20' and I own plans for an expanded version called the Great Alaskan which is 28'. The designer of that boat is unable to be involved in this project at this time thus my need for some help.

    I wish to alter the basic skiff design in order to build a workboat style planing cruiser for two persons. The boat would be used for the Great Loop as well as the PNW and would be approx 34'x9'6". I need basic structural and hydrostatic calculations as well as input into such design matters as dead rise, chine flats, flare, etc. I am expanding the Great Alaskan design, itself an expansion of the Tolman Jumbo, by about 12%, enough of a change to need professional evaluation IMHO. If I am trying to go too far with this type of construction then I would like to know as early in the process as possible and if improvements are possible I want to know ASAP also.


    Please respond through my mail here and I will give you other contact information. Thank you.

    A taped seam build of that size wouldn't be very common, but certainly is possible. I have a 33'x9' taped seam design in my portfolio currently. You are correct in that an enlargement of this scale needs professional attention and I'm sure there are several here that could help you. You can contact me by email if you like (click on my icon).

    Westfield,
    Have you sourced a designer for your project? If not I would very much like to produce a proposal for you. I have 27 years+ experience in boat design and manufacturing, with a segment spent designing for Grand Banks Yachts. I have an appreciation for conservative, functional design and would find your project very interesting.

    My contact info is as follows-

    Did You Ever Build Your Boat?

    Hello My Friend, Did you ever get your proposed vessel in the water.
    I am looking at building something similar, [I think], but 53 x 13

    53 x 13 landing craft style jet boat project

    Hello Earl, Thanks for you quick reply.

    I looked at your website earlier today and then again this evening, very nice.

    One of my favourite vessels is the East Bay 54, I think that I was on one of the first ones at the Miami Boat Show, many years ago.

    This is who I am and where I am in my life at the moment
    www.Maritime-Gypsy.ca

    I am going to build a 53 x 13, shallow draft, live aboard, adventure/touring boat with "Off Grid" and extended time at anchor vessel with solar and wind turbine free hydro to go and explore the Rivers and Canals of the world.

    The vessel will be more utilitarian than luxury, comfortable for two, with occasional friends and family staying over for a couple of nights each time.

    I want it to be Cat C and Euro acceptable as we will no doubt end up there at some stage in the future.

    The reason fro the 53 x 13 is so as to have here lifted onto a tractor/trailer and shipped over the road when needed with just a "Wide Load" sign but no need for "Escort Vehicles"

    I am looking at a LTS electric motor with a Hamilton or IntelliJet nozzle with a back up 20 K generator.

    I know what I want but not qualified to put it on paper myself

    If you have an interest you can reach me through my website and I can send you a OneDrive file to show you my thoughts.

    Thanks for your interest
