Paul it looks like your boat is sitting great in the pictures. What is the indicator that it's stern heavy?

This would be a great boat for someone wanting a boat larger than a Jumbo.  It's not only wider at the beam, it's also wider at the chines and deeper, as it has 39" sides, 5" chine flats and the transom deadrise is 13 degrees.  With the bracket outside the hull it has no splashwell and lots of usable deck space.  It is all AB Marine Fir Plywood.  I've attached a line drawing PDF with specs. of the boat.

It would make a super Montaque Island Halibut Hunter!!  Grin

I keep debating adding a swimstep to my widebody as I'm also heavy in the stern with a 140 back there.

I did move the tank forward about 18" and relocated the battery from the stern to the helm since the maiden voyage pic which has helped.

But I'm thinking the added flotation and longer water line would help my performance.  That said, it would be a major mod.

Hello all

  Im moving so finishing this boat just is not in the cards.  The hull is done and basically ready for the crash chamber and cabin construction.

  Its a kit Neal made for me a few years ago.  The stringers pass through a full height transom and finish in a motor bracket topped with a swim step.  Bracket is heavily glassed in as well as lagged in with long silicone bronze lag bolts.

Tip of bow to transom s 25' with about 3' of step and bracket behind that.  Its about 8'3" wide at the moment.

This will also include about 17 gallons of aero marine epoxy.  The epoxy pump from Michaels.  a roll of 4oz cloth about 6 rolls of 6oz tape.  Several buckets of fillers cabosil, milled fibers, microspheres....

Several sheets of plywood 3 3/4" and multiple lesser thicknesses.  Side braces and shelves are cut and ready to install as well.

The bulk of the work is done and would make a great winter project for the right person.  

Im not even sure what I paid for the kit.  The glass and epoxy were not cheap.  Heck a 15 gal epoxy kit at aero marine is currently 680.00

Id like to ask $6000.00.  If this is crazy or off base let me know I won't be offended.  Im sure this is well under what I have into it in material expense alone.

Feel free to contact me here with questions and if you want to come take a look we will sets something up.

Currently in South Anchorage

That looks like a massive undertaking. Good luck!

I really like the Shock absorber thingy, I have in the past tried to transfer the engine load onto the trailer using a piece of timber but that's way better, good find, cheers.

Lifting a slab on grade house starts like this:
2x10 strapping nailed to walls either inside or out.
3 transverse steel beams are punched through under the 2x10's.
Jack the steel to pop the sill plates off the slab.
Continue jacking and cribbing to waist height.
Build a new floor system under the house. we went with 3.5x14" wood I joist 16"oc and 3/4 t&g plywood with the PL adhesive. This will allow a 22' clear span at L/460 deflection.
Slide two longitudinal steel beams under these
