It is different. This is baseline construction where the bottom is made then is made then a box like frame is added then the sole. The boat is self bailing with the sole above the waterline.
Everything is built off this base- sides quarter seats and, my favorite, casting deck. It is very straightforward construction.

DFix More closely refers to sailing than powerboating; watertight enclosure which allows hoisting/lowering of weighted keel through bottom.

Hawkeye I've learned a lot of boat terms in my building adventure but I haven't run across keelbox. What is that?

Hawkeye I am in the midst of final fairing - a very detail intensive job. I'm hoping to put the first coat of epoxy on on Saturday and if I'm lucky the fiberglass as well.

Great So Far

The boat is moving along and looks great.
How long before you begin fibreglassing?
I just flipped the box keelbox and will be adding sides shortly.

Hawkeye It is a LaPazz 22 extended to 24. Designed by Ken Hakinson.

It will have an 8 1/2 foot beam, I/O alpha 1 gen 2 engine with about 180 - 200 hp at the prop, 100+ gal total feul tanks, and will weigh in at roughly 3,000 lbs.

JimW That's amazing. It really puts my backyard boat mechanic antics in perspective.
