Is there any interest in building and getting together to use boats like this? My thought is to meet in different places around the area to explore interesting areas. Any small boat up to about 12 ft. with motors in the 15-25 hp range would be included. (Kind of like Puddle Duck Racer for power boats.)

Actually, I've seen videos of the inflatable cats you mentioned. With a little encouragement, I probably will draw-up and build a Super-dink. I saw a TV show a LOT of years ago about some guys that traveled around running rivers with a couple of these, Been fascinated ever since. Give it some thought--we could each build one and go play together. My son would run the glass boat with his son. Lots of interesting places to explore around here.

Sorry, you'll have to click on these and rotate them. I scanned them into my computer upside down. Don't know why they didn't print picture on this post.

I used to have one of the 10', 2 seater fiberglass boats called a "GW Invader". It would take up to a 35 HP. It was a lot of fun but kind of useless except for going fast and jumping waves, kind of like the PWCs now. While I enjoyed it, now I have to live with the reality that each boat I have takes up a lot of space so they have to be usable for multiple purposes. Geez, I sound just like my father!

Well then Bill, I'd recommend a 3 point hydro and some fishing rod holders, so you can call it a utility. I actually did this years ago, even had non-skid texture on the foredeck and a built in place for my cooler. My other half didn't think I was as clever as I thought I was being.

I just received a mini-magazine from Great Lakes Boat Building School (GLBBS) in Cedarville, MI. They have a group of four cocktail class racers being built. They are using the CLC kit, called the Skua. It's an 8' mono hull powered by a 6-8 HP outboard. Looks like fun. GLBBS is strictly a wooden boat school for people wishing to learn how to build small craft.
If anyone is interested in the school's info, their website is www.glbbs.org & phone is 906-484-1081.

Checked out CLC's Skua at their shop in Annapolis and neat little boat. Seem to be catching on and may be a rebirth of low-cost fun OB racing. Wanted to play about 30 yrs ago, but now leaning toward a fun, low cost, 2-4 place little runabout with about 20-30 hp, to run easy, dry, and efficient up to a light chop, in the high teens/low 20's? Something like Glen-L's 12' Flying Saucer, Sort of a Morgan +4 on the water . http://www.boatdesig...t/products/324/

I thought I posted here yesterday, but it's GONE! I don't think I'll be building a Superdink right now, but I'm cleaning up a 10 ft. mini runabout for use this spring. Gettin' a new double seat made. Anyone want to go run some "cricks"?
Picture below. I still have the molds for this boat if anyone wants to become a boat builder...
