23ft Dayboat Launch on Hawkesbury River; storerboatplans.com

Dayboat/Launch 23 – trailerable cruising outboard motor boat

The Dayboat/Launch is 23ft long and intended as a Dayboat or Camp Aboard boat for a small family. It has space for an enclosed toilet. The design is complete drawings for hull but final decisions are left to the builder. It is not step by step instructions like my smaller boats. It cruises at near 8 knots with a 10hp high thrust Yamaha outboard.
