Glassing will not add that much extra weight and will add a ton of protection to the hull. However just painting it will work as well. As for the engine, I don't think you will have any troube with a ...

I have not but if you look or best yet download the plans you will see that it says the hull will weigh in at 100 pounds. With quality Hydrotex Marine Ply you could get it down to around 80 to 90 poun ...

What house boat do you have in mind. I can start and send you high rez images as I complete them. If needed I can redo the text pages as well. I'd rather start with something some one really wants. So ...

Mark,

Go to Glen-L.com and look under their inboard hardware section. They have it all. That is the best one stop shop for your parts. One other thing you could do is to find an old boat with good ...
