Looks good!

Inboard or outboard power.

Looks like a lot of bow rake for a 22 foot boat, you might want to make the most of the waterline length for rough water, with such a short length.

Still looks fantastic, very light weight too for balsa.

Thanks guys for all good opinions

Outboard power, every horsepower you've got as long as it is single O/B ( 300hp+ ). It will be build very strong, don't want to have problems with low quality and braking transoms/bottoms at high hp.

Plans for production?? It depends from orders but I will be able to make one complete boat in 2-3 week time, also I can make couple boats at one time. Laminating takes 3-4 days, after that I can start to rig it and build another one. We'll see....

First boat will have my XR2 Race Merc, with center fuel tank and keel pad at last bottom section I hope to run somewhere in low to mid 70's but everything will be clear in aprill

Cheers
Mike
