AK Ducks - Weren't you and the other dudes trying to do some layout hunting this past fall while the boat was sinking? At least you got the guns back.
Did you ever get the boat back?
In all seriousness you and those other two guys down there need to pool your resources and come up with a better boat option - college or not. Building a boat is not as hard as it seems, it just takes a little time and space. The biggest amount of money will go to the engine.
If you want a layout for two you will first need a tender boat about 20 feet long. Layouts don't tow well so they need to be carried to the spot. Lots of guys in Puget Sound use just thier skifts and some netting to look like a rock. It will work for you and be safer.
As to building someone a boat. I can help depending on my time. I am working on setting up to build one this spring with a friend in Wasilla. It will not be a foamer. If this boat works out well, I will build one for myself and probably sell the foamer.
