Mackinaw-AL by Rob Landsman, Sooke, BC Canada

My friend Ken and I started the boat two weeks after my son was born at my father in laws place Campbell cove Maritime in Sooke BC. Ken is a metal boat builder, he told me about you. I picked the Mackinaw design because I want a fishing and camping boat. Ken made a cardboard model to work from along with the blue prints.The hull is 1/4\", sides are 3/16\" and the cabin is 1/8\". The boat will be powered by a 300hp Evinrude E tec. I will have the boat Cabin interior foam sprayed soon. After that I will start on the wood work inside.

    Nice design. In wood I would use a 90 or 115 tops.

    I really like the design! I am torn between the Mackinaw or the Chinook. I would really like to stretch it out to about 32′.

    What is the minimum HP (outboard) needed to get the 19′ version in wood to plane out? Since this is the same hull used in several boat designs then, I assume, the hull weight is about 1200lbs for the wooden 19 footer.

    What about the rust factor ? Mostly in salt water, Is there a version that uses less HP?
