Thinking a tower of power would do it. Something around 110hp, but bottom line is take what i can find in a short shaft.

Check the floor on that one real good. I almost bought that one 5 years ago and there was some corrosion that went through the floor and stringer in places. My dad died at the time I was looking and I couldn’t follow up on the deal. It was a really cool boat.

Guess that solves it, Experimental Prototype Clipper.

Made comparison measurements against that of a Clipper and all within 1 inch.


We would love to see some more photos!

There are two styles of stringers use in the Clipper. I'd like to see which one you have.

Thanks!

It's called reverse sheer. The Clippers have reverse sheer.

John F what's the term I am looking for when the bow draws down in the front?


If i remember correctly camber is the port/starboard slope and sheer is the forward/aft slope? It has been awhile!
