NEW DISPLACEMENT HULL

Capt. Chamberlain's old/ new Radon, Jeff found this old beat up Radon boat up north and had a vision of this , I got to admit it was real hard to see , it was super ugly and beat to death.



Anderson boats in SB took the challenge and stripped it down to the bare hull and rebuilt this , really came out nice , not to big not to small . He never lets me drive , probably the only time at the wheel for me!



Jeff is gonna have a ton of fun on this new toy with twin 60 hp Yamaha's .




Designing a smaller boat , 18ft is a real challenge, Jeff's been a boat freek his whole life and this is a longtime dream come true, every detail has been thought out. Cool project, neat to watch from start to finish.

  1. twin 60's is a lot of weight. hope she planes out
    at 18'?
    we had a 19 with twin 70's and it was an issue.
    kinda slow and weighty. eventually planed yet carried a wheely for a bit. maybe with the fwd console and all that weight will help even it.
    (ours was a open center console and fiberglass)
    that one looks even beach launchable!

    Jeff here....should balance out fine. Center of weight will up in the cabin which is about 4' further up than a center console... motors aren't too heavy.... At 3300lbs approx, she's far past beach launching, but it'll be a game changer, that's for sure. And Kirk, it's 'tool', not toy!
