When I built my boat. I never told her I was building a boat. I asked her if she wanted to go for a car ride one day. We walked into Jeff's shop. I asked her if she liked it. When she asked who's boat it was I just smiled and she knew.

A wise man once said it's easier to receive forgiveness than ask for permission. That same guy also said to install as much HP as you can fit in the boat.

Hahaha my wife saw this in my dads back yard about a month after it was delivered. She said what’s that? I laughed and said “you never asked how my trip to Maine went” (it’s was just starting at the time)

I just let her figure it out when they come in the driveway-last one I got a week of silence. So I grabbed another skiff the other day to make a center console last week to see if I get another lol View attachment 151071
Ooh a straight shaft 25, love those little boats. Chrysler 318s hooked up to v-drives?

I would rather do a 28 up as CC instead and get rid of the step in the cockpit when you do a new deck.

I love the look of the 25 convertible, pocket battle wagon. Having the box in middle of the pit was clumsy but to me a better option than the stern drives. The later 26’ Moppies were a better set up with motor boxes in the conventional spot. I don’t know if there’s a better way to set a 25’ up aside from bracket/outboards

This thread is getting kinda highjacked and now more related to the "What's Your perfect Boat" one LOL. Pocket rocket ideas other than Bills bad ass creation, IE: using off the shelf bones can compliment a DE just fine. Gut it and just config simply for max room and storage that is the major drawback of the older hulls. Got to love the performance and economy at least on a calm day depending on age. I took a 25 Blackfin Combi and put a 380 QSB 2.2MPG or better at 28KNTs but best thing is no cavitation even in 5ft snot. Fish all day for 20Gal fuel in the bay!!
