James Prokos Just Launched his Kachemak V-Bottom Dory

James Prokos uploaded these pictures and information on his Facebook page:

Launched July 3, 2020. Still trying to fine tune my 2nd Spira designed boat. The Hydra foil on the outboard is a MUST on this boat it almost completely stopped it from porpoising over 25mph. Ready to run weight is 1850 lbs (90 hp, 12 gal fuel, battery and gear). Gunwale is decked with 3/8 thick mahogany.

Boat Building Photos

Please don't be embarrassed to send in photos of your projects. I get a lot of emails from people who tell me about their build but never send any pictures. I'd love to see them, as would all of the other people who are either building a boat or thinking about it. They need all the encouragement they can get.

I believe in offering you all the information you need to learn more about how to build a boat. That's why I offer free videos, free ebooks, and free reports. There's even some free plans available to insiders and some seminars I've delivered. To join, just click below:
