David Perillo was one of my most enthusiastic Navigator owners, he'd bought a second hand one after having to sell a much bigger boat and after sailing it on Aucklands wonderful harbor for a summer decided that both he and the boat needed a really good adventure. Dave made some very close friends there, they needed a practical fishing boat, one which did not use huge amounts of fuel and he felt that they needed the little boat more than he did so when he was ready to return to New Zealand he left his boat with them as a thanks for the incredible welcome and friendship that he'd experienced.
The boat was like a quick 1980s plywood club racer, with a gaff sloop rig that incorporated some ideas that I'd been cherishing about high performance from the traditional style rig. Rigging the boat was to be simple, none of this needing an hour or more to set her up before she can be launched, that just burns up valuable sailing time. But the rig has to work better than most, so there are some modern adaptations to the sails, they look traditional from a distance but they will work much better than you'd think. To add more speed still there is a moderately sized gennaker, much like the single luffed spinnakers used on the big Americas Cup boats but much smaller, this is a very easy sail to handle and even single handed it is manageable if you are organized. He got a page of frame drawings first, and some basic instructions as to how to make each item, I had the next sheet to him before he ran out of things to do, and for the most part that was how it went for the next 18 months.
There have been a number of daysails and cruises since then, the little cookbox galley under the tiller aft being well tested, and the space allowed for laying out the airbed and sleeping bag proving to be more than adequate. She's fast, much faster than anything her size with the exception of the pure racers and handles well even when travelling at planing speeds.

What I ended up with was a 20 x 7 ft gaff sloop that is essentially half decked with an aft house for the cabin.
Attached are the sketches and, if possible, the essay on how the rocker is drawn and how the boat is proportioned and why.
Location: New Zealand Scow project Got the sides done this afternoon, and sat the shear log in there too. Will have to sort the bow and stern out too, before I get too carried away decking it over. The computer is starting to groan and creak now when I bring up all the layers at the same time. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. That adventure turned out to be shipping the little Navigator up to Fiji and spending 10 months sailing her around the remote Northern Lau group of Islands, an area where Europeans are very scarce, and where some very long passages have to be made in order to sail from one island to another. We talked about where he'd been in the original Navigator, what he'd done in the second one and we went through all the a€?what ifsa€?. It had a raised floor that had enough space to lay two airbeds and sleeping bags out, a cockpit with good backrests and the right footwell width for comfort, a centreboard that would swing back if he touched bottom when exploring in shallow places, and which was to be made of steel so it would steady the boat when he sailed her singlehanded, and there is lots of dry storage in lockers that double as buoyancy that would keep the boat afloat, upright and able to be recovered if he overdid it and capsized it sometime.
The design was just a carefully proportioned sheet plywood over stringers dinghy with no major bends or twists in the planking. I was careful to keep the sail area relatively modest due to the singlehanding requirement, but it seems that if you can feel any wind at all she will sail, and sail well.
He tells me that she has very much fulfilled the brief which was for a first time amateur build, speed, occasional races, fast daysailing sometimes solo and sometimes with friends, and a camping capable voyager that will cope with the sort of weather that we here in New Zealand have to live with even on summer afternoons.

Parker has some interesting plans for a 44' (if I remember correctly) sailing scow in his book.
They will capsize in the right conditions and do not have the ability to recover from much more than a 90 degree knockdown.
I changed the proportions a bit by making the Beam smaller in relation to the Length and by keeping the Rocker in proportion to the Length. Flotation chambers would be built along the sides and there would be a raised deck in the bow (for storage of bicycles). I could imagine living aboard such a craft and just knocking about the Gulf Coast (lots of sand there, I understand.) The boat would be narrow enough for legal trailering and could be taken to other suitable cruising grounds.
The 'Puddle Duck Racer' class has been in existence since 2003 and a lot of experimentation has been done with these boats.

That means the model has been turned into a nest of spiky lines stretching to infinity again". He sent me a sketch, I scratched my head over it for a while then sent one back, he liked it and I sent him out to buy some plywood while I got on and drew some more drawings. There would be a minimum of tools and space required, Dave had not built a boat before so I had to keep her consistent with what I thought his skills would be.
They will help you decide whether or not you can build the boat but do not provide sufficient information to actually do so. Find groovy deals on eBay for Wooden Sailboat Model in Wooden Boats and Ships Models and Kits.
This thread is really interesting in that I think many people, myself included, have entained building a sailing scow, or scow houseboat at one time or another.
A trio of them recently participated in the 'Texas 200' and sailed up the Texas gulf coast. I upped the processor priority for the Freeship programme before I started, so I hope that is helping.

However as a liveaboard and to sail in the aforementioned protected waters, they are a reasonable choice. So far, all input to the thread appears to be quite positive and helpful to those interested. They did surprisingly well despite being arguably over loaded and way out of their element. I am in the process of designing a boat for myself which has many of the characteristcs of a scow but has ballasted bilge keels to provide stability in a knockdown.

My design owes quite a lot to the English Thames Barges and there is a modern interpretation of these being built in steel in Norfolk, England by Charley Ward.
Many of his designs have internal concrete ballast, how about a boat with a reinforced concrete bottom to just above the waterline, and composite wood topsides and deck??
