When I typed "sea strike 18 diy" into youtube - I got this unit.

That doesnt look like the pontoon thing I thought Ice was building

But I'm glad I looked it up - that is a savage, ply wood beast, that does high speed turns, on a dime

that one is Pete's SS18, a pretty sweet rig... you'd be amazed at some of the boats that have been built.

Plenty of designs to choose from to suit all needs...

Yeah the hulls, that are mass produced, would have a generic feel to them - kind of idiot proof designs -

But I imagine there are other designs, where the creator does things that pushes the envelope of the average user - As long as you know the mind of the designer and what they had in mind for the rig - there are hulls, that can do things, no mass produced hull can do........but there is a danger in that aswell.

Ie a flats boat built to handle 20 knots in the florida keys may struggle in the face of a 15 knot sou wester on PPB shallow reefs.

I'd take every hull designers recommendations with a grain of salt - then google the average fetch and wind velocity of where they were design for.

If its longer than the distance between Geelong and Black rock - then you might have to re calibrate what the hull is designed to do.

Coz I've been over whelmed in little quintrex's,
-medium quintrexs,
- high sided,small tinnys,
- high sided huge, 7m tinnys,
and on 2 occasions, when Squalls, only a wind surfer could predict, overwhelmed in an 8m, 2 ton wooden rig.

PPB is a joke on a global scale - but if you arent used to its charms - it can turn quite quickly.

i don't know how much i'll take it out on PPB.

I wanted a flats boat but probably will wish i had built more of a crossover boat that can handle a bit more chop, but oh well

Yeah those flats boats dont know what hits them when they hit PPB -

the shallow curves of the hull, means they slap across the surface, in a way that makes them "eat" flats chop

- but they have to be driven with care in PPB bay chop.

Definitely doesnt mean they cant do it - but the low free board means you have to pick your days and wind direction, before slapping your way out there.

Drewry used to do it in his green flat bottomed triton - but if you werent on board getting the seat pile driven up your arse - you could hear the hull slapping from 5km away.

Hulls are designed for the water they are going to encounter - and PPB isnt the Florida Flats - as long as you know that - you can pick your days and not push your luck

If i venture out on PPB i will be picking the day but one of the reasons i chose this design was to help get me up into some skinny water, places i'd only normally try in the kayak.

Plus i could only go so big in my shed, it is a tight fit as it is, if i went bigger i would have needed a bigger shed
