48″ Day charter project

Hi! I’m starting the build of a kurt hughes design day charter cat to be completed spring 2022 in southwest florida. it will be a cylinder molded wood composite build. I’d like to communicate with anyone else who is currently building, or has built a similar boat. i’m a professional boat builder, having built and worked on several of kurts designs.

couple of questions:

  1. anybody have a suitable dagger board mold? or want to use mine when i’m done with it?
  2. any good leads for sourcing rudder shafting?
  3. if anyone needs uni or triax i have found somebody with a couple tons nearby (sarasota area). vectrix and very reasonably priced. let me know in the comments and i’ll post info.

  1. Fantastic to see this build happening. Please keep posting as I will be watching eagerly to see how this goes. Do you expect a lot more man hours than the hulls you built for the powercat? Are you building alone? Great stuff!
