    Building a shuttlecraft?

    I want another boat, I have missed mine since I sold it but really don't want the upkeep of a boat as far as maintenance on another engine goes. Shuttlecrafts are way expensive, I figured I might could build one from an old fiberglass boat.

    Any suggestions as to what type of boat to look for like v-hull, tri-hull etc. Pros and cons of doing this? Any input/advice would be great. Anyone ever done this, I can't find a write up on it.

    I have a shuttlecraft, dont use it much... good for idling to a cove then detaching, i wouldnt use it for a "boat" hard on the motor... actually hard on the ski too, just getting the ski in and out will scratch it....

    Well my boat was used to get from one side of the lake to the other in under 3 minutes (68 MPH) and then just chilling on the boat in a cove basically. The ski was used for tubing and everything else.

    Thats all I want again, I know its hard on the jet ski and it wouldn't have to push it around very far. Just something for everyone to hangout on and take camping stuff and such to the islands.
