Ken you might be able to help, I was trying to think where I saw the thread about the guy that built a 210 out of aluminium he did a amazing job. it might help old mate succeed in his quest for aluminium wake boat glory.

I'm pretty sure that was a thread on wakeworld a few years ago - or maybe even a news item? you'd have to search their archives.
The guy that made it was in south america somewhere i think? Brazil maybe?

I would say yes to a centre fin... think of it as a pivot point which the rudder acts against. If you had 2 or 3 fins like most wakeboats it will give good tracking. without the fins I imagine it would be more like a jet ski where you turn and the hull kind of skids sideways in the water a bit.

with regards to choppy water I agree that the depth of the V would hep to cut through the water.

on the other hand the thing about a flat bottom punt is they are very stable and resist sideways roll. Its kind of a trade-off, deeper v = smoother ride, flatter = more stable

One thing i'd like to bring up is the angle of the v towards the bow of the boat, it looks pretty flat there and just as a guess if you had more angle there it would help with tracking and cutting through chop. The big channels on the sides at the back will lift the boat but remind me of a tige' 20i they can make a pretty good wake with about 800kilo's in 'em having said that they are very wide boats yours may not need that much weight as it seems narrow.


You could fix this by welding a large keel piece, similar to what Supra have.

Nice work though man !! It's going to resonate like a baastard if you don't build in noise absorption panels.

Nice work, Hull looks good try and run it as soon as possible, even tow it at speed empty with a long line and big boat. Add some baic steering to see whats doing. Leave the revese chines at the rear, they do more work then the skegs when cutting hard at slow speeds. Good luck.

This board had jumped another level of cool with this build! :) Pretty please keep the pics coming, its one thing to see a restored 70's or 80s' fibreglass beast but to see boats coming out of handcrafted love, not a mould is amazing!!

I'd love to offer some constructive suggestions but all I can do is offer encouragement! GOLD! Keep it up, and please keep us all in the loop!

Wooohoo, more fabrication!! 8)

Nevergrew thats exactly what I was thinking but didn't think anyone would understand what I was talking about, so I didn't write it.

I like Nevergrew's Idea.

Has anyone got any pics of the extended keel from the bow or stern that I can use? It's a bit hard to determine the width/angle from profile shots.

I thinks I know what I'm doing this weekend, extra keel!

These photos are from doctord's homebuild. This is the only one I have seen and it looks like it would work for turning. It would also make the ride a lot smoother through the chop.

Actually to answer your original question: while laying on the ground under the trailer, I noticed that the Supra didn't have a really big deadrise on the back either. If you notice on the side shot of the 20V above, it looks quite flat.
