I have been lurking the boat building part of this forum and have been really impressed with what I have seen being built throughout the years. Well I have finally decided to pull the trigger and start one myself. Picked up the wood last night and waiting to get started. I am going to build a 12' skiff with a bottom of 36-42" and the top at 48". I have no pre bought plans only ideas and dreams so go easy on me. What would be a good height of the transom using a 15" shaft outboard (small engine size) motor? Also if if you could point me in the right direction as to what angle to put the sides at so as they aren't straight up and down. I know if I put them at an angle it should add bouyancy right?
Thanks for any help you guys can lend and keep building on.
