I have thought about taking a boat building coarse at the local community college for fun. Just need to commit, and make the time.

Re: SST-60 Speed Boat Wood Composit


I doubt that is the kind of boat they will be building in that type of a course.

Re: SST-60 Speed Boat Wood Composit


WOW!! That's some serious Chit. I mean that from a drivers point of view. I've driven these years ago and to tell the truth that's a LOT of work. To get your canoes straight, level and true takes a lot of time. The center section is a Kevlar/Carbon fiber reinforced cockpit capable of taking a direct hit from a boat traveling at speeds around 60 -100 mph. That boat will travel around 80 mph and turn 180 degrees in the width of a job box. Of a 14' boat only 2' will be in the water at full speed and the prop. Kudos to the builder. Built the first pic back in High School and was running about 58 mph before it blew over backwards. The second pic is of my SST45. They're a blast to drive. It's a slot car on water.
