don't know if you have already purchased one or not.  If I had to live with one saw only, I would take an 8 1/4" Skilsaw.  They cut 2 7/8" at 90 degrees and angle cut to 60 degrees with a depth about 1 3/4 inches.

The 55 degree bevel on the bow stem cut is no issue.  Same for scarfing.  Will also cut 6x6 material with two passes instead of the 4 cuts and a handsaw/sawzall.

But who would only want one?  It is like golfing with only one club or trying to fish with only one rod...

This is somewhat of a test.  Never really 'posted' or 'forumed' we will see how it goes.

Started looking around a couple months ago for a boat to build with my six year old.  He has already done several fair winning projects with grandma in the last couple year. (She has had her shop featured in American Woodworker and Woodcraft.)  

Fell in love with the lines of the Tolman.  I also liked Bolger's Bartender but not the rounded rear for fishing and general usage.

We are going to start with a 1/4 side model of a 20' Widebody.  Additionally we will make all of the other items like jigs and forms in the same manner that Renn describes in the book.

In the spring I am going to sell my raft/rowing frame/trailer to purchase plywood, epoxy etc and we will see what the summer brings.

Jerry can you send me the details.  I will probably buy them.   the VA guy said too much work for him.  I think Ill put the work in and do the motor carbs and rehang the motor.

I have a set of controls, brand new, that will cost you 1/3 of the $350 your are estimating, if you end up needing them. They are intended for use with standard cable like the honda uses so it should be an easy set up. I bought it for my old boat and then decided to build the widebody instead. the tohatsu came with a binnacle included so I have this replacement control gathering dust in the garage storage.
