I wasn't aware of the Spearfish and the concept is very interesting. There is something very rewarding in a craft that goes well for a minimal OB as demonstrated a couple of decades ago when I modded a 16ft plywood Canadian style canoe by cutting the last two feet off one end and fitting a transom for a 2hp Mariner.

The 15ft Spear fish is very narrow... distance between the tubes is small enough to grip a 12l fuel tank... that's narrow. Not sure the 18ft is the same?

Be interested to hear more of it when you get out and about pappajoe.

The 18ft is a little wider and if it ever warms up it will be nice to give it a blast.
