Thread: 32' NR Sounder Build

  1. #1

    Default 32' NR Sounder Build

    The build has started, should have a boat again in June. Last year at this time I had 3 boats to use now I have none. It has been a rough spring not having a boat but the new one is getting built. We are planning on bringing it from Everett to Haines in July.
    I will post picture of the build once I figure it out.

    Very cool way to build a boat. That's gonna be a beast on the water. I know what ya mean about the pains of being boatless. It has really sucked.

    Twin 300HP Suzuki is what I decided to go with. I was originally looking at 300 Yamaha but with the aft station controls they were $8,000 more.
    The boat is right side up now and progressing. Here are some additional pics.

    Looking great! What is the thinking with the flat chines (versus reverse or none)?

    The concept is the same as reverse chine, with it and the lifting strakes it helps you get on plan faster, also safer and shaper high speed turns, increased stability, and reduces spray. They are fairly large to offset the 24 degree deadrise in the stern.

    Just for playing. We will have it on a trailer and plan on using it in South-central and Southeast.
