Puget Sound Cruiser

The modern hull is strip planked with a light layer of fiberglass on the outside for durability, making a light strong boat. Generous internal framing adds to the strength and longevity of the boat. This hull uses a moderate V towards the stern to promote early planing and high efficiency while the bow uses a much deeper V to provide a comfortable ride. The hull is well flared all around, so the boat should stay nice and dry. To achieve high efficiency, power comes from a high-speed diesel driving a stern drive. A gasoline stern drive could be used for better performance, and less efficiency. Outboards would be a less expensive alternative. While a jet drive could work on this boat, the plans are not drawn to incorporate one.
