Power 2 Plans
A 21' x 7' bigger sister to the Power 1 design using the same easy construction method and having a similar double chine construction with a flat bottom panel simplifying her building and producing an easy planing hull form. The hull, seats and cabin take around 13 sheets of 9mm and 5 sheets of 12mm ply and she weighs approx. 500 lbs. excl. engine.
Both the Power 1 and 2 designs are designed for multi role use either as fast launches or as load carriers and because both have parallel sectional shapes aft, they can be shortened or stretched in length to suit your own requirements. One example of a Power 2 stretched to 24' has been used as a dive support craft in the Bristol Channel and Irish Sea. With twin 40 hp outboards and fully loaded she could plane with speeds of over 30 knots.
