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.

|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.

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.
