The cut is continuous and 32 inches long with the last six inches being only the width of a saw cut. Wider before that, one and three eighths inches wide at the start.

Thanks. If I am clear then the 6 in. cut is actually a continuous cut from the 1 3/8 far right side gore or is there a stop point at the 1 1/4 in. and then the 6 in. cut begins shortly after. Hope this makes sense. John

The saw cut is so you can bend the bottom around the frame to make it curved. I think I went with one and three eighths inches for the larger gap measurement on the "gore". You end up trimming here and there anyway when you assemble so it should be fine to use that number. Make sure you gently  curve the gap you cut in the plywood.

I got Billy G dialed in today. What a blast.

A 25 hp Johnson should run between 5 and 6000 rpm. Billy G does 5300 flat out and sits on the step perfectly.

If anything I have the engine up just a tad too high. That makes it a little tricky to get on the step. That said, if I do it right, there is no cavitation. And it accelerates from about 4500rpm to 5300 quickly. If I come up on someone's wake I can throttle back being mindful not to come off the step, then open it up as soon as I'm past. If I do that I'm flat out again quickly. If I have to come off the step, it might take a while to get going again.

I'm calling it a win.

Sorry if these questions have been asked before about the Minimost build

1) the plans listed on the site show a 6 in. saw cut on the bottom hull panel at the 26 in. mark to 32 in. mark . Diagram #3A. I do not know its purpose.

2) to the right side of this cut is a 1 1/4 in. gap from a saw cut and to its right is another gap that I can not read. Appears to be a 3 with a fraction.

Thanks in advance

Sponson sides added and some filleting done.  Transom next, then the sponson decks.
I would love to have a set of full-size plans myself.  Are you unable to view/print the 8 pages of PDFs?

It's actually coming along quickly. I put the decking and coaming on these last two days. I just started it in the middle June. Now I'm pondering which boat to build next. Lol

Wilwood detachable steering hub.  I've put one on every hull I've built.

I'm a little over 6'3", so it makes getting in and out much easier.  ( $28.43 USD )
