As far as I know, he has built the very first Dillon Laker SC12.
Right away he has gotten creative with the coaming profile, and I like it.
A relatively deep transom will give this hull a little extra buoyancy when sitting still -- such as when lined up along the beach waiting for the race to start.
Although Rob is not a racer. However, the added buoyancy makes this boat better suited to the bigger 2-cylinder and smaller 3-cylinder motors.
Rob 'glassed the decks and (later) the coamings for a really durable finish.
A well-secured fuel tank.
Rotary type steering, neatly threaded through the hull.
The motor is a four-stroke, 40hp Yamaha. That's got to be plenty heavy.
That first coat of paint really brings it all together.
Now that's a beautiful paint job!
"Hi Bob..., I just wanted to give you some follow up on my Laker SC12. I love this boat. It is extremely fun and handles like a race car. It brings a big smile to my face. The Yamaha 40 with a 15 pitch prop runs the boat well. Able to reach top speed of 45 mph. I have changed the prop several times and this seems to be the best size with this engine. I have a Yamaha 60 on order... this engine is about 25lbs heavier but I think the performance will be worth the extra weight. I know these engines are heavier then your design call for but the boat performs well regardless of the extra weight. I am very happy with the design and feel very comfortable behind the wheel.... Thanks, Rob"
