A place for people to discuss "do it yourself" projects from building blinds, to boats and everything in between.
I've seen old post of the kara and how ppl have purchased the plans and such. I haven't had any luck finding these plans. Does anyone have a set of these plans?
Also would a 6.5hp mud buddy be to heavy for the homemade kara?

Lots of info available if you search on the waterfowl boats part of this forum.

you could make the 6.5hp work if you build the full 14ft kara (I modded mine for 12ft) and make a sturdy transom.
but honestly, knowing what I know now I'd just buy nice manufactured fiberglass boat from the start. they're lighter weight and more durable. But I really enjoyed taking on the project and seeing my finished product. I was able to fit 3 guys (aprox500lbs), a battery, and tolling motor in my 12ft Kara and it still floated just fine.
