My first iteration of this design was a tandem boat that I based on a 1923 George Crouch designed mahogany speedboat called Baby Bootlegger.
This boat is 14′ long by 26″ wide. Built of strip-planked, bookmatched mahogany with carbon fiber and fiberglass reinforcement. The strips are 1/8″ thick.
I fitted this one out with a carved mahogany and maple seat with carbon fiber reinforced back rest support.
This boat was made as a matched set with a tandem version. All the mahogany came from two flitch-cut consecutive planks.
Plans are available for those who want to build their own.
