Draft for the 18 standard and wide body
« on: February 16, 2018, 02:57:47 PM »
Hi all.  I'm waiting for my book to arrive before I can start my build.  Does anyone know what the draft is on a tiller 18 standard and 18 wide body?

Here's Jack and me at the stern of my 21 foot standard. One of us goes 85 pounds and the other 195 pounds. Looks like we are drawing around 7 to 8 inches like that. Probably 5 or 6 when we move forward. My transom has an extra layer of 1/2 inch ply. I changed to a 50 hp remote steer last year.

Cool picture, and you have your dog trained to climb ladders too.
