This stylish high-performance ski runabout has enough depth for peace of mind along with the comfort of a beamy deep-v hull that - unlike most ski boats - actually rides well. The vee at the bow is a wave-splitting 24°, blending in to 15° at the transom. Integral lift strakes make for a quick hole shot, while knocking down spray and adding control in the process. You can power with a single I/O, or one or two outboards.
Theres plenty of seating and space in the cockpit. The arrangement shown is only a suggestion - you can vary it to suit your needs. For strength and durability, construction is over five sawn frames reinforced by stringers that stay in the boat as part of the simple building jig. Yet assembly is easy, quick, lightweight, low cost, and suitable even for first-timers. Sheet plywood planking totals 1/2" on the bottom and 3/8" in the sides. Fiberglass sheathing is used on the exterior for low maintenance, added durability, and a quality appearance. Plans include instructions, material listing, fastening schedule, and FULL SIZE PATTERNS.
