Plans to build the 13' Fiesta Bay Speed Boat
Back in my college days, one good friend of mine was a water sking competitor. He had a homebuilt 13' ski boat with a 35 horse Evinrude motor that was a lot of fun to go blasting around the local lake in. I'm not sure whose design it was, but that little boat was fast and stable. It did, however have some features that probably made it difficult to construct, like lots of tumblehome and lots of curves in the sides. It was OK to strip plank but would have been inmpossible to build in plywood.
When I had someone write in and ask for a mini-speed boat design using my simple construction methods, I thought of my friend's fun little boat as I drew up this modernized version, the Fiesta Bay. For anyone from Southern California who loves heading to "the river" (The Colorado River running through the desert between Calfiornia and Arizona) knows that Fiesta Bay is party central at Spring Break. The Fiesta Bay speed boat is an inexpensive, easily built, lightweight, shallow v boat for fun on the water. It'll pull a skier with a 25 horse motor, on a real budget for both construction costs and fuel usage.

About Home Built Speed Boats
A lot has changed since most of the home built speed boat plans were designed. New designs, materials and methods have arrived on the scene that change almost everything, yet the same old tired designs are all that seem to be available. These old designs are tough to build, require the use of materials not commonly available and while they may look nice, aren't nearly as strong, reliable, or maintenance-free as what can be done today. Using only common, readily available materials, and simple fiberglass and epoxy covered plywood planking, you can build a light, strong, and dependable boat you can be proud of in a surprisingly short amount of time.
