The boat was tested with a 70 and a 90 HP, some builders installed engines up to 115 HP but we do not recommend more than 70. With a 70 HP, she will go faster than a fiberglass boat of the same size fitted with a 125!
This boats transom is designed for a standard 15" shaft. The transom can easily be modified to accept other shaft lengths.
The plans show a standard deck layout with, starting from the bow, a large anchor locker, ample storage space under the foredeck with access from the cockpit side, a large self-bailing cockpit with ample storage for fishing rods under the sides, a center console with more storage under the seat, an aft deck with, in the center, a large circulating baitwell, a fish box and a tackle locker. A seat cushion with snaps is usually fitted on that part of the boat. Battery, pumps, filters and drain valves are located under the outboard well, accessible through a large hatch. Other layouts are possible, it is very easy to customize this boat. The fuel tank can be located under the foredeck, just behind the chain locker or under the center console. The plans show rigging pipes running from the console to the outboard well, under the cockpit floor.
