OC20/B in Biloxi MS USA

I'm not sure if the big box stores sell "L" shaped molding in PVC, but it would be easy to make, with two lengths of 1x4. Glue them together at 90 degrees with some construction adhesive on a big (long) table and your mold is set.

So after a rather nasty week. ( I had to put my hound to sleep due to her fear of thunderstorms which has been ongoing for 4 years, she was getting very destructive  and my wife and i were hostages in our own home. ) Nuff whining :) 

 

The Boat has been turned over which was a task in itself but only due to my gravel driveway. Turning it over was not very hard but the piano dolly's i had under it did not do well when they ran of the plywood onto the gravel. That being said it is done and i am very happy with the end result.  I think we had a bout 9 or 10 body's .  here are a few pic's :) I think this might be the largest 20' boat i have seen and is starting to look right sexy like

Working on a little pipework. Looking towards a fuel tank now. My math tells me i can shoehorn 85 gallons in under the console amidships. Those oil rigs are far :)

Right now i am trying to figure how to drain live well and fish box overboard and not into the bilge, then out through hull drain. Then is some sort of scupper arrangement through the live well and electrical box then out under the swim deck. Think i gonna try some underwater lights also

Thank you both¬†Lotus and Lenm.¬† I am leaning towards a 115 yamaha for the fuel burn. 3.5 gph@3500 RPM giving me a huge fuel range but want the bigger tank for possible bigger motor. A lot of folks who look at the boat are sumwhat stunned at¬†the motor size. Do not think they get the whole cold moulded boat being lite thing, but i would like the boat to be able to make those off shore rigs with fuel to spare.¬† As to all the thinking it makes my brain hurt¬†ūüė≤¬†right now i am trying to find the fittings for the hydraulics in the swim deck so as to make for a nice neat connection to motor not knowing what to call them makes for a hard search.¬†

Riggs I hear you re pondering, I think I have spent more time doing this than hands on work.

Were you planning a self draining deck? Is there enough deck height on the OC's for a gravity type arrangement or will have to be pumped out via bilge?

Yes lenm it will be self draining. My issue is in my wisdom i have placed a fish box, live well and electrical compartment across the entire transom. My plan is to use 2 Ball type scuppers through the transom into the compartment below the live well and the same on the starboard side, then with pipe bring them through the bulkhead onto the deck level of the boat. It looks to me like there is a good few inch's right next to the bracket web's. The pics show were i am planning on the pipe that will come through the bulkhead which is not there yet¬†ūü§™. If anyone has a better idea please please tell me.

Hello,

 

Currently looking at the OC20 as my next build project.  Out of curiosity, what is your anticipated use of this boat?  I'm assuming the Gulf, but how far out are you thinking you will run?  

BTW your build looks amazing!

Thank you thank you

 

The boat is gonna be a fishing machine. Folks round here think nothing about doing round trips in excess of 150 miles. Run out to the oil rigs then east and west along the coast looking for the fish.  As soon as i get a quote back on a gas tank i will have some real idea of fuel range capacity.
