    I'd add a little transom bracing for my 9.5hp short shaft I have, that thing would scoot.

    I built one from those plans from Hannu’s boatyard (same website). It worked out great for a few years. I left it outside after using it in a couple different river floods and the floor started separating eventually. Where the floor connects to the sides has the most pressure on it. I also used a thicker transom than the plan called for. Nice video 👍

    Very nice. Really enjoyed seeing the fore-aft bench seat - very clever idea. Thanks for making the video!

    I Loved It Completely...Design...Construction...Each & Every Step Thought Through. HOWEVER !!! HOW COULD YOU GO THROUGH ALL THAT, WITH THE VIEWER...AND ''NOT'' SHOW US A SMALL VIEWING OF ''THE MAIDEN VOYAGE'' you know, like 'IN WATER'' otherwise, BIG THUMBS UP

    very cool
    -- the rough cutting on the bottom then recuts to make ready
    for final matching is very smart to avoid regret from trying
    to get it too precise the first go... I rather prefer gap-spaced
    gunnels for more strength and would have done a full sheathing
    of the the bottom and sides and another patch at bow and stern
    for wear along w/ your reinforced seams plus treated plywood
    for the motor mount and used scraps from the 2nd sheet
    to carry along as drop-in floor reinforcements
