The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used.

    I have a set of Ray Sargent' plans for a 15' Sport Runabout including the conversion plans for the Subaru marine conversion. They were purchased back in 1997. A little dog eared but never used.

    Good looking boat. Not an easy build but maybe worth the effort. The Subaru engine is well proven in several other boat types. A better engine choice for a boat of this size because it is much lighter than say a 305 Chev or something of that sort. The bigger engine would make more HP but the 2.5L Subie can make 150 shaft horsepower without much strain. That'll be ample for a 15 footer. Way back in the day, Wooden Boat magazine conducted a design contest for a boat to use the Subaru engine. There is a marine transmission that is a perfect fit for that engine. The magazine had all the details.

    Start building.

    It is a good looking boat, but I have my hand full restoring another boat and would consider selling the plans if anyone is interested.
