Roberto is building his boat near Venice, Italy.
He tells me he plans to run a 240hp, 2.5L, V6 Mercury. "... maybe too much!!!," he says.
YES, too much. Waiting to hear more details.
"Naturally, I' m not crazy!!!" he reports. "I have used your project as starting base, but the boat has been resized.... The lines, the angles have been observed but the hull [is] much longer (18 feet) and higher. All the boat is renforced with two layers of fiberglass with [epoxy] glue and the part below has another layer of carbon fiber. For withstand the power of the motor I have created a reinforced cell."
