I am copying my original post from another forum and figured it was time I post here on this dedicated forum. Please feel free to comment/ask amy questions you might have
Thanks

Its been awhile since our last build thread, and in that time we've made some changes to our panga hull and built a new mold.  We've done away with some of the “traditional” panga features, but still maintained the core features.  Our new hulls have a flange to accept a full gunnel cap, and a flat transom.  The old style stern had large radiused corners and the bottom of the transom kicked up as well.  The new flat transom allows for easier transom mounting – Trim tabs/ladders/transducers.  Additionally, we are now able to offer a fully enclosed transom with a portabracket as an option.  The full gunnel cap will allow for flushmount rod holders/cleats.  Along with these changes, we have laid out a larger 8” stringer grid, and cored the sides of the hull as well.  This thread will serve to outline the changes we have made and show the build process for our new demo boat. 

The demo boat will have the following:

25' LOA
7' Beam


Raised front casting deck with storage and insulated fishbox
Rhodan 24v 72” trolling motor.
Half tower with upper controls
Simrad electronics.  Dual screens on console, Single screen in half tower
Haven't decided on audio yet.
50gal fuel tank.

Power:
Suzuki 150 with SPC (digital controls)

Gelcoat/Skincoat:







Stringers:
Our stringers are made from a long single beam and then cut to fit. Traverse stringers will be cut to fit using the same mold. 



The increased stringer width allows us to run the chase tubes inside the stringers. The color change on the hull sides is the coring.




Once the stringers we glassed in, we were able to pull the hull. A lot of work up until this point, and a lot of anticipation hoping your mold prep was correct. 



Still plenty of work ahead,and next big step will be the gunnel cap. Size/shape/anchor locker/storage all will be laid out and a mold will be made.

More pictures.  The bulk of the work is done on the gunnel cap plug.  The next few days will be filling/fairing/priming - getting the plug ready to be shot with tooling gel so the mold making process can begin.  This cap will allow us to make full transom boats as well as traditional notched transoms, just by blocking/damming the mold.

Got the cap pulled and put it on the hull just to see how it looks.  Still needs to be trimmed, but I am happy with how it looks!
