Location: Port Orchard, Washington, USA You just asked for a sharpie, which where built to do just what you asked. A vessel is nothing but a bunch of opinions and compromises held together by the faith of the builders and engineers that they did it correctly.
When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Location: uk thank you for everyones help i finally decided on building a 15ft skiff as it does what i need.
I'm a bit of a broken record about about this site, but it offers a free look at complete plans for some old designs. Location: Florida come on Oz, skip the plywood, you've worked in real wood, and are familiar with it, and probably enjoy and appreciate it. Location: Eustis, FL That's traditional file planking and something I'm very familiar with, but it's heavy, has many dozens of potential leak points and is difficult to fair.
Location: Florida lol, better just to walk along the bank then instead of getting into a plywood boat! Originally Posted by p_smith come on Oz, skip the plywood, you've worked in real wood, and are familiar with it, and probably enjoy and appreciate it.
But if he's looking for a practical, easier-built and more watertight boat, methods and materials have come a ways in the last hundred years or so.
Location: Eustis, FL He can install skids and bottom strakes to protect the planking.
Location: La Florida The flat bottom version will be more stabile, but the v bottom would get less pounding.


I would suggest that you create a hull bottom that is about halfway between the two examples you have shown. I would also suggest that you reduce the amount of bow ramp just a bit so that going forward when alone will not be as much of an adventure. I've designed a couple of boats (Swamper and Swamp King) that are near to the one you are developing. Location: Lakeland Fl USA A 12 foot boat with a 30 inch chine beam is going to be a bit tiddly.

This is probably my last entry ever, as I prepare to meet my watery end tomorrow afternoon. This is what works in a cardboard boat: a pointy end (to keep you going straight ahead), a wide flat bottom (to keep you stable), and sides that are high enough to keep the water out but low enough to allow you to paddle. There's a very simple principle in physics which says that the total buoyant force is equal to the weight of the water displaced by the object.
I was thinking of a pretty straight forward design of two sheets with a drop keel and sides about 2' high. But you really don't need any plans for a sharpie or a flatiron skiff, just a picture of what you know is a fair preforming boat and then build it to look like the picture. If you hook up a gas engine to this type of bottom, it will leak like a bottomless bucket (file planking doesn't tolerate vibration or wracking).


This mid-point deadrise angle will give you some chop cutting when looking to attain some speed and have virtually all the side to side stability that you'd get from a pure flat bottom. With the small power that you mention, you will not lose a measurable amount of performance by going either way. The software packages now available can make some pretty pictures of boats, but it doesn't tell you if the shapes you've selected are well suited to your needs. The boat that you have suggested will probably be OK for one person who is willing to sit on or very near the floor.
It's the material that will keep you socks dry and generally is some of the best on the boat, if professionally built. Considering the hundreds of designs available for a boat in this size range, you're so much better off, just buying a set of plans and following the engineering in them.
If you want a traditional build with antique building methods, use the file plank system, but if you don't want to fuss with the hull after it's built, use plywood. Doesn't need to be a speed machine and since I'm not a real experience sailor, not planing on leaning into the wind to much.
