    parker marine did it

    Hi... Parker marine built a nice florida keys cruising boat. I'm working on a multihull project that will be built from plywood with flat panel construction, little bigger than what you seem to be after but easy to build (I hope):confused: . I thoought this might generate some discussion anyhow?

    Yeah, Reuel B. was an early inspiration of mine. I read his book cover to cover a few times. He has, in fact, given me several shortcuts that make a lot of sense. I don't know how to insert links, but if you Google George Beuhler, you might get some interesting insights. Cheap/fast build and outfit is a good thing!

    inserting links is in your tool bar for posting high light what you want as the title Like George Beuler and then click the little globe in the tool box it will bring up the text box for a hyper link

    That parker marine 36 is a pretty nice looking boat. Its kept a few docks down from my boat in Key West. I've walked by it a few times. Not something I would prefer, but it has nice lines, looks like it has a decent amount of room for overnight trips, and is definetly streamlined for high speed with very little power.

    Concrete, Mayfly?

    I'm not kidding, many houseboats are build with concrete-pontoons, and whatever you want on top of it.

    Hmm, imagine if bill gates said that back in the days: "Hell, if silicon was a good idea it would be everywhere" ;)

    Seriously, though, most purposebuilt houseboats (i.e. not rebuilt ships) here are built on concrete floats.
