Ok, probably going to open a huge can of worms here but What is a good durible hull thats at least 13x7 foot or perferably wider? Wanting to keep it light as possible but not so Light it can't run dry? I am wanting to build a DD hunt boat... Motor has roughly 525 ft Lbs at 2800RPM's so 280 HP Sad thing is I blew most of my budget on this motor. Not a race boat remember its a hunt boat so looking for good reliable new hull that isnt at the 3k mark perfer to be close as possible to the 2k mark! Thanks.

I tore up my first 2 Fiberglass boats on the rocks up here,,, I looked and looked for about what you are

asking about,,, Classifieds, Craiglist, and on and on,,, Then I did as you did and just openly asked for

that kind of boat and it wasnt a week later that a man in S. Fla. PMed me that he had a hull like I

wanted,,, We talked and I explained that I was way up here in Ga, and S.Fla was a World away from

me and how it was going to take some time before I could get down there to buy the boat,,, And

damned if he didnt say not ot worry, he would save it for me,,, The rest is history,,, SA is all it takes to

find what you are looking for,,, Just dont give up,,, Good times are a comin'...
