Plans to build the 24' Glacier Bay Power Drift Boat

Here's a husky power boat intended for safe passage through very rough waters. Intended for safe breaking bar crossings and surf launches, the Glacier Bay can handle just about anything, yet be economical to operate and even get up on a plane with modest power when conditions are favorable. The Pacific Power Dory-like bow will ensure the ride is not overly jarring even when it gets sloppy, and the substantial rocker allows positive control even when surfing down rollers. Want an easy to build, capable sea boat for all weather use? Here you go.

Building a Wooden Offshore Power Boat

About Power Drifters

I conceived these power drifters as safe, offshore power boats capable of handling unexpected conditions the North Pacific can throw at you suddenly. The river mouths and channel entrances of Alaska and the Pacific Northwest are known as some of the worst possible boating conditions anywhere.

These boats also perform great when used in fast moving rivers while needing to power upstream across rough, whitewater conditions.

These drift-boat based hull forms are highly maneuverable and highly stable in moving water and breaking waves to bring you through bar crossings, or crazy offshore conditions, in one piece. They're sturdily designed for commercial capable operations, yet not overly heavy for easy trailerability and launching. While not speed demons, they'll power through anything and get up on a plane when desired with minimal power. They're ideal for offshore jaunts anywhere in the world where conditions are unpredictable and a safety is paramount.
