If anybody is looking for one of these hulls I have a 72 20ft in my yard that needs a new home. Started the tear down then switched to a 20ft seacraft. Still gonna follow this build

We had that hull in a 24' with an old Johnson 2 stroke 115 on it. It would run all day on 20 gallons of gas. I seem to remember most of the 20 footers having 70-90 hp motors on them. Great hulls, I recall having 14 head of kids on ours for a scalloping trip to Pepperfish Keys.

I researched it and considered using it but havent purchased any. I did buy air-comb, there honey comb material for my floor. Its made by Polyumac in Florida, you can look them up for more info on it. Who is the distributor you are using?

Polyumac - Advanced Core Materials | Manufacturer of rigid polyester foams, fiberglass reinforced foam cores, pourable polyurethane foams, and polypropylene honeycomb

Little more progress. Got the cap off today and was surprised to see no reinforcement under it. At least it will make it easier to put my own in.

What's your thoughts on the inside. Doing away with the liner?

100%, going with a 3 piece. Adds almost 8 inches on foot room on the inside. I will add supports along the hull sides and reinforce the cap with coosa or similar material
