HOMEMADE MINI SPEED BOAT!! Part 1: Build and Tes
Check out the MINI BOAT I designed and built this summer 2010. This video
shows fabrication thru the initial test run. Test run is short and low
speed because it's cold and I dont have a safety boat

plans if you want to start to build a boat. Find articles on wooden boat,
classic boat, boat repairs, boat paint and more.
This is the build process from start to stage 1 of completion of my high
school woodworking project. 9.5 foot tunnel hull boat built within one year
at the high school. It is now near completion with a jack plate, steering
wheel and throttle as well as a 1956 Evinrude Fastwin 15 horsepower motor. The
current motor being run is my 1948 Scott Atwater Firestone 3.6 hp just for
initial testing. This is the first time it was ever put in the water and
the first time I ran it. Enjoy!
See "Showcase" video for final product and interview of its features!

My briggs & stratton powered boat running at sea
Finally got the boat on the water and running great! Used it all last
summer, but i did some mods to it this summer, like the stearing system
that comes from a old Ariens lawn tractor. The engine is a Briggs &
Stratton 8hp from a 1977 Gilson snow blower, and it runs perfect!
My homemade plastic boat/water craft/ raft
This was the first test, including a mini stability test , but being
carefull as this is a city lake...aint that clean, and smells bad, didnt
want to risk falling in at all. But the boat/watercraft works well, cant
wait to go fishing. Made of...Five , 5 gallon bottle (5th is hidden in
middle back completely submerged) , pvc pipe, cement mixing tub, storage
bin , 2 bowls (on front) and milk crates. Oh, and my awesome paddle made
from a dust pan and big end of an old ocean rod.
6.2L LSA Engine Install & Lake Test
6.2L LSA Marine Power engine w/ Bravo III XR outdrive lake test. Engine was
installed at Michigan Motorz. Exhaust
was run THRU-PROP, not thru-hull to reduce Exhaust noise. Many components that were
installed are special/custom to make the 6.2L LSA work in a stern-drive
Redneck Jet Ski (Lawnmower drives on water)
We built this from an old lawn mower using 55 gallon drums for the wheels.
it worked pretty well until the welds broke on the barrels and the rear
axle housing broke in half.

Home made chain-drive outboard
I made this out of a used 5-horse Briggs motor, a go-kart clutch, a golf
cart wheel hub, and some scrap metal. Basically I needed an outboard for my
little aluminum boat, so I used what I could find around the barn. The
only thing I had to buy was the used propeller ($7 at a garage sale).
According to GPS it pushed my 14 ft. boat and two passengers 6.4 MPH going
upstream in the Black River (near Lake Erie).
Glen-L Pee Wee homemade runabout boat
This is the Glen-L designed Pee Wee that my daughter and I built in the
spring of '09. With my 8 year old daughter the boat planes out quickly and
rides great. She really has alot of fun and is becoming very confident and
a highly skilled skipper. Yes, she passed the boaters safety course. I have
less than $600. in wood, bronze fasteners and west system epoxy in building
this. It took us about 3 months working in the evenings. I tried a 5 1/2 hp
engine at first but the boat had troulble getting on plane. I then found
this 1955 Johnson 10 hp at a garage sale. With the 10hp it will even haul
me and my 8 year old around at 20 mph, we have a combined weight of 225
lbs. With just my daughter in it the Airguide speedometer reads 25 mph.
This is much more fun and safer than a jet ski or pwc.
