Hi all,
The length is 20 x 8 ft.
When you say the first one do you the very first one, Berry's craft? Ok I'll take a couple of hundred pound bounce from that one, and I think
still be in a good operational range.

The 1st plans-built Explorer was Bryan's 20' Alaska Explorer. Mind you, it had a EA-71 (I think) engine on it, too....55hp! Barry never built an Explorer.
