    Understandable, this is why I asked your opinion. Thanks.
    We will be doing our annual Santa through a friend who has truly created a massive group of elves.

    I talked to Graham, and he said he would be glad to do the mylars or cut it for you but that unless it was a private design, he didn't turn lose of the CNC files.
    They have had issues in the past where folks have tried to steal their designs.
    Alan found an outfit in Turkey that had even been so bold as to steal pictures off of B&B's website and claim them as their own.
    If you have a small trailer or a long bed pickup, it will easily carry a Marrisa kit. All of the panels are less than 4 X 8 and if Graham cuts it, I can promise you it will be perfect. He can also provide you with the epoxy and fiberglass at a better price than you can buy it. He uses Allen Ply from France for the plywood, and they also make Bruynzeel marine plywood and it is the best, the Allen Ply is almost as good. Give him a call and get a price
    Hope this is some help.

    Buck,
    I have been thinking about undertaking a small build for a while and feel like the ECO 18 [Marissa] would be a good project. I am a carpenter by trade but only built a tiny canoe from wood and epoxy.

    I deal with a full service lumber yard that has a cnc machine and access to good plywood material. Should I ask Graham if he would be willing to send the cnc info. in lieu of mylars. It seems like it would save a step. They are a family owned business, and I have known the owners since we were kids so I feel like I could say with confidence that the plan would not end up "stolen".
    I thought you would be a good sounding board before I approach Graham and or Carla.
    Hope all is well.

    Capt. Hugh,
    What type of rudder port and bearing setup did you use on the 45 Powercat ?

    Capt Hugh, I have a new, half tower that we never used. It was for that 60 ft sculley that we finished. I will sell it for a fraction of what they cost to build. I have it on ebay under tuna tower, if you want to see what it looks like. This would be great for a person building on a budget, or a new charter boat. Rich

    Hi my name is Brandon,
    I’m in the process of turning a 1979 38ft EGG Harbor into a Chesapeake bay style charter boat with a single motor. I was reading some of your post and saw that you have cut down several similar style boats into single screw express sport fishes. I am thinking of putting a 450 Cummins 6cta in my boat and was wondering what size gear you thought I should go with and how fast you think she would cruise. Also if you have any other info or any suggestions for me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks Brandon.

    Capt. Hugh,
    Do you have any pictures of the Marlin IV, that was built by Alex Willis back in the seventies, that you would like to share. Im building an all juniper 46' vessel very similar to the Marlin IV in Panama City, Fl. right now.
