We do not offer CNC cut files for this design.

 Easy planing at low speeds, great stability whilst at rest, and  reduction in fuel consumption without compromising the strength, durability and safety of the design, careful consideration was given to loads of storage lockers, comfortable seating throughout and a stable platform for fishing or other recreational activities without compromising safety for those on board.
    Designed also for ease of construction for the first time builder, the Mushulu 12 is light enough to be easily trailerable for adventures in distant places. But overall, it had to be simple and easy to build, without spending everything you have.

    For the interior, it had to be clean and simple, with a loads of room and storage. Emphasis was given to having higher than normal sides and comfortable seating arangements, without having your knees in your face.
Within the seats there are 2 large sealed lockers, for all those items you may want locked away, while still retaining the foam filled buoyancy compartments in the outer seat sections, as required to comply with the standards. The bow seat also doubles as an anchor locker.   
Overall, the design had  to be kept simple, clean and functionable, for a great days fishing or simply out and about with the family.

CONSTRUCTION METHOD:
The construction is epoxy-fiberglass-plywood composite, a stitch and glue composite system designed for efficient and fast building. To put it another way, the hull material is engineered as a fiberglass laminate whereby the plywood is treated as a thick, yet weaker laminate within the fibreglass schedule.
Building the boat is easy. The builder simply assembles the hull as a plywood boat first, then glasses the outside and inside with fiberglass, to produce a strong composite hull without all the time consuming woodwork associated with traditional plywood on frame. Bog, fair, paint then time for the internals. Its that easy
