I am afraid you are right. I am spending WAY too much money getting my :mac19: updated.

I have a new 40 hp motor on the way. In the process of finding a small console for wheel steering.

I drew the line at 10k for a carbon mast.

It is probably going to cost me more getting this :mac19: right than what they would charge for the :tat22: IF it ever gets made.

My :mac19: is almost ready for the unveiling.

Tomorrow I take it from the fiberglass shop to the motor installer. Console is installed. Motor bracket installed to get it back from the transom.

I will post pictures once the motor is on there, hopefully in a week or two.

My plan is to use the motor to steer. I was thinking of being able to add something to the skeg that would extend about a foot below the motor to work as a more effective rudder. Any ideas?

I am doing all this in the hopes that production will soon begin on the :tat22:
That is how my luck goes. I will have the coolest :mac19: ever 8) Then the :tat22: I really wanted will go on sale :cry:

I would concentrate on the 19 and put the 22 out of your head. Sounds like the 19 is coming along great! Can't wait to see pics!

I officially have the coolest :mac19: on the planet.

I was able to obtain one of the last evinrude 40 hp made and put it on the back with a small console and wheel steering. It runs so good I will be taking her deep sea fishing in the gulf when it warms back up.

Oh and check out the go anywhere fast trailer I got a while back. ( I would still love a :tat22: though )

So miamistyle,

I always figured Miami, but now that you say you're putting her in the Gulf :?: :?: :?:

Nice aft - I took my Miamistyle up to North Fl almost 20 years ago. I live in a small town about an hours drive from Stienhatchee. If you have never been to Stienhatchee, there is a long channel to get out into deep water. It used to take me an hour each way when I had a Mac Classic. I won't have that problem anymore. 8)

Boat - I agree with you when it comes to motoring, the 19 is a real tough boat, it doesn't sail too well, especially into the wind. That's why I think a retractable keel with a heavy bulb (like they were planing on the :tat22: ) would have kept the motor performance of the :mac19: but actually allow you to sail into the wind.
