I want to use it to fish out of and do some cruising with in the Pacific NW and maybe take it to Alaska if the boat can handle it.
Location: Washington I don't know about the Atkins boat, but on the pram you can easily calculate the safe HP. Location: Olympia,WA I was just thinking, my sears 12' that I had back in the early 60's with a 3hp on it would do like around 6 or 7 mph.
Location: Eustis, FL This is LittleHughey and a classic warped bottom of the 1940's.
Location: Australia That Little Huey is compound curved topsides and bottom ? Location: Eustis, FL Yep, she's a carvel or batten seam build, so not a set of developed shapes. Location: Olympia,WA I also sent an e-mail to Pat Atkins about Little Hughey and also about Jog a Long.
Location: Eustis, FL Pat is John's widow and though a nice person don't know much about the designs themselves. Jog-a-Long is a completely different approach, being a displacement hull form that's modified enough to carry her to about 10 knots on 40 HP (and you'll use all of it). Location: Eustis, FL If you can tolerate displacement speeds, then many of the Atkins designs will do. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.

Atkin designed lapstrake (each plank overlaps the one beneath it) gaff rigged, cat boat.


Proceeds from this classic boat, new trailer, sail and oars will be donated to Little Traverse Sailors Sailing School. She's got a lot of forefoot, so I wouldn't think she's going to get much over 25 MPH, dragging all that hull around. These plans cost $75 and for this money, one of a few hundred different designs are available. This boat is a fairly burdened craft and intended to carry hefty loads, slowly, but safely. If you're building in plywood, you'd be foolish not to avail yourself of the benefits of 'glass sheathings and of course epoxy encapsulation.
If you want a heavy, slow and traditional looking boat, that's built plank by plank, then Atkins is a good source. Personally, they are often overly heavy for their roles in life, which you must pay for in regard to materials, hardware and building effort. Designed by Halsey Herreshoff the 38 Cat Ketch is basically a one-off creation with each vessel having unique features.
As you come below the aft stateroom is on your left with double berth, under-berth storage, and hanging locker.
There?s a Magma grill for the fresh catch-of-the-day, and a swim ladder to help you on get on board after swimming or diving. Galley features a combination stove with oven, stainless steel sink, ice box, and hot and cold pressurized water.
It was traditionally built and donated by students at the Great Lakes Boat Building School in Cedarville, MI. She'll also trim up a fair bit at WOT with a 30 - 35 HP outboard, meaning a raised helm would probably be needed. The bottom looks easy enough to plank, again except for the forefoot and the aft topsides also look workable with plywood, maybe just a single slit in the last few sections (probably two).
If you modify her to use a single, she'll lose some (a good bit) maneuverability and few other contrivances. This assumes you'd like a much lower hull maintenance routine, true water proofing and improved durability and abrasion resistance.
They have their place if you must have an antique hull shape, but otherwise nary a modern skipper will tolerate one for very long. Maybe you should look at the Bartender, which is a plank on frame build, fairly stout, can handle moderate power and rough conditions.


I created this site mostly for my own browsing pleasure, but if you like it too - all the better. Extremely sea-worthy with excellent handling the Herreshoff will get you where you want to go and back safely. To your right is a full galley with teak cabinets, tile counter, stainless steel sink, ice box, and even a dishwasher. Great class association and excellent sailing characteristics have created a fleet that holds value well. You wouldn't need a high thrust outboard for this and she would be able to handle rough conditions to a point, assuming the skipper knew enough to throttle back when required. If you're building in solid wood, you'd still be wise to epoxy encapsulate to stabilize and waterproof the wooden elements. There are exceptions to this rule of course, but it's a very small percentage of the market. The salon has large wraparound dinette, teak dining table with storage, under-seat and bulkhead storage.
Private head with shower and vanity is located starboard between the forward cabin and the salon. We have enjoyed many happy days aboard Mal de Mer but because of our age, 79, we are facing the dreadful day when we have to give her up. Toss the damn thing(s) on the transom,, use a bracket, put a set of outriggers or sponsons on her if you're pulling gear and you gain the cockpit space and huge maneuverability improvement too. The stock navigation desk and instrument panel is separated from the galley by a custom unit for more instruments and galley shelves. I am not looking to build a real heavy boat but something in the 20 to 28' range that will use a 30 HP motor maxed. The cockpit is large and comfortable with cockpit seats that are easily long enough for lounging or sleeping.
