If you have any do it yourself type skills, building a drift boat should be no problem. My brother and I built a 24' center console with moderate do it yourself skills and the boat is awesome if not pretty if I do say so myself. The engine on the other hand gave us all kinds of fits and we recently took out the IO, rebuilt the transom, added a transom bracket with swim platform and a 150 yamaha. We took it out the first time on Christmas day for a sea trial with great results.
