Squirt by Hakan Zorlu, Istanbul, Turkey

I started my project on 14 September 2006 by cutting the frames pieces from the paper to make them template to the plywood. Physically started the wood work at 10 October.

My project took 292 man hours to finish until finally on 01 Sept 2007 my little girl met the sea.

I would like to thank all the people in the Boatbuilder Forum who helped me with my problems during the project.

My Squirt has 15 HP Long shaft Johnson and max speed 22 Knots (because of the long shaft). My second project will be a tug boat but I haven't decided which one.
