home built small 8 foot hydroplane
by Gordon Hornbeck
(Swan River, MB, CA)
I am looking for plans for a hydroplane boat I built in the sixties.
It was only 8 feet long and I clocked it at 33 mph with a 9.8 hp Mercury outboard.
It was a 3/8 plywd bottom and 1/4 plywd deck and sponsons.
Virtually no internal frame except to mount the wheel.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
