I am exploring the possibility of commercial fishing wherein the model would attempt to downsize all aspects of the operatiopnin a similar fashion to modern small-scale farming. I built mine for $600 in materials, 3 weeks labor, and powered it with a used motor that I'm into for $500.
Spokaloo- As I was writing this design brief I thought of the Lumberyard Skiff and your experiences with her. It gets rowed as a shoreline work boat, and also I use the oars for a trolling motor when I'm trolling for trout or moving the shoreline casting the docks for bass.
Trick I've found is to set your oarlocks relatively far forward so that you weight the bow and keep the forefoot wet, while picking up as much weight at the transom as possible.
A big advantage is being able to work and stand right on the outside of the deck reaching straight down over the vertical sides. Spokaloo- I know you run your 16' LYS with a 30 HP, would 25 HP be underpowered for this application? I actually blew up the lower unit on that 30 this winter (it wasn't in deep enough water and night temps were 14F), so I'm now running a 25.
The fisherman might be going after clams, oysters, shrimp as well as flounder and redfish. The standard small boat for a one small boat commercial fishing operation in your area is the heavily built 20 - 22 foot fiberglass Carolina Skiff with a largish (90 - 115 minimum) Yamaha outboard. Remember the requirement to keep a catch fresh adds a lot of weight to a boat - either live wells or lots of ice.
I grew up on the water in my family’s power boats cruising the Columbia River, Pacific Ocean and beautiful San Juan Islands of Washington State.  Other than owning one steel boat (26’ Steelcraft), all of my family’s boats were beautiful wooden vessels – Chris Craft, Richardson, Tollycraft and others. We would go for day cruises and overnighters on the River, and would spend 2 weeks in the San Juan Islands in the summer.  I have wonderful memories of those days! After college I married my lovely wife and we began having children (five boys all together!).  In the early 90’s I was looking for a serious woodworking project to sink my teeth into. After completing this five year project, I was totally HOOKED on building and using wooden boats!  My next boat was a kit kayak from CLC Boats (Mill Creek 16.5), next was my “baby” skin-on-frame Greenland kayak (weighed 25 pounds), then a 12’ lapstrake canoe (from The Canoe Shop book), and I have just started buiding a SCAMP sailboat (11’ 11” microcruiser) from a kit. I discovered podcasting through my son Josh in 2009 and began listening to a variety of shows during my work commute. Since September of 2011, I have enjoyed publishing one wooden boat podcast every week.  I have met scores of amazing people, and am having the time of my life learning more about wooden boats, and the fascinating people behind them.
Sam – I was at the Museum on a Saturday last October and asked for you, but it was your day off.
The feedback from my 19' Galveston Garvey was excellent, but many wanted a more compact version easily kept in a garage, towed by a small car and capable of taking a small group of anglers or hunters out for a day of fun.

Location: PNW My own interpretation of a double ender is a vessel whose hull shape comes to a pointed or rounded end above and below the water. Location: ALABAMA viajero In the late 60's I sailed a double ended 65' ketch to Hawaii from Sausalito.
They had cars in the 20s and 30s that looked like that too but that didn't make them double enders. Look in the April issue of Woodenboat Magazine to see many many real and true double enders. I would have to politely disagree with your statement that a true double ender can be run backwards as well or almost as well as forwards.
Location: Lakeland Fl USA One more to add to the planing double ender list.
When you call a flat stern Lund type skiff a rowboat you fog or haze the meaning of the word rowboat to the point that it has little meaning. These are double-enders, Scottish fishing boats, again the bottom and topsides terminate in an obvious stern post.
When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Just musing here, but is the angle between the the sides and the bottom of dorys fairly constant along the length?
In my experience, you'll have a much friendlier and more pleasant boat if you put a whole bunch of curve into the sections, rather than a simple, constant 7° flare like a Banks Dory.

A garvey or a sharpie skiff are the primary conveyance of baymen ( aka, small-scale commercial fisherman).Plenty of stock designs out there. But for the kind of work you describe a boat with vertical topsides ( no flare) allows you to stand up right at the side of the boat. It's been a tank, and gets used for all sorts of work, like this morning we ran 2 hours worth of water samples over 10 miles of lake. In fact, a couple weeks ago, I was rowing with 700lbs of human load and she pulls reasonably well. Never even seen one in the flesh,but from your requirements,i would say she would fit the bill,and the budget perfectly. She's stiff enough as-is, though I think I'm going to add another thickness of rubrail eventually. I loved to be outdoors, to swim and just liked being on the water.  I was introduced to rough water at an early age as we would frequently cross the “bar” at the mouth of the Columbia River while salmon fishing, and also while cruising on our 38’ twin screw Richardson yacht up the outside of the Washington coast to the San Juan’s and back.  I even learned to braid rope for various mooring lines my dad wanted for our boats! I had subscribed to Wooden Boat Magazine and began attending the Wooden Boat Festival at the Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle, WA. Introducing the Wye River, a great little fun boat that can be built and used for far less than you might imagine, and rugged enough to handle the bumps and buuises you will encounter if you use it in the bayous and backwaters it was designed for. They're not enough information for you to build the boat, but they do give you the overall boat size, shape and construction methods. You would answer yes and then call it a double ender as you are selling this boat I'm sure.


Those crude, industrial dories were built to be as cheap as possible to construct, and to be able to be stacked like dixie cups on the deck of a fishing schooner, not to be pleasant and satisfying to row. Not because it needs to be stronger per se, but because I am really hard on it and I used Spruce so it is taking a beating.
Never shipped much water, but where we crab it might be best to have the protection of a splashwell.
This hull will also handle open water and can be loaded down with more gear and cargo than just about any other sixteen footer out there.
After completing the purchase and having your payment accepted, use the Return to Spira International link to take you to a secure page on the Spira International site where you may download the plans and instructions. They IC is a furious planing hull that is a double ender, but the taper of the aft end, is by rule, not to exceed 45 degrees per side.
Keep in mind that's not well mounting the outboard, just a little addition to the front of the transom so if any water slops in, it drains back out. It is no surprise that they almost always configure the aft end, as seen in plan view, to be as nearly flat as the rules will permit.
That boat looks so good to me I'm going to show it to a friend and he may buy it but I will not call it a double ender because it's pointed or tapered stern does almost nothing to change or enhance the performance or dynamic qualities of the boat.
We will be notified of your purchase, but are not informed if you completed the download of your plans or not. One thing thats great about flat bottomed sail boats is that when heeled smartly they become a deep V hull. The name of something should reflect some significant or hopefully dominant feature of the thing to hearld what it is.

The double end boat concept is obviously hard stuck in the grey however there are many double end boats in April Woodenboat Magazine that are 100% double enders. Those snooty sailors, with their proper boats, too often, could only see the back end of the 110. If you were addressing a group of stock brokers I'd say you could get away w calling the Fairliner Torpedo a double .. Without the rocker it would be a planing hull but even then it's questionable and w power applied it would clearly be a FD hull.
The IC uses a sliding hiking plank which is highly efficient and I swear it is easier to use than a trapeze.
If you call the Bartender and your boat a double ender the meaning of the expression double ender has been reduced 80%. It has a full rounded transom and would not go gracefully backwards nor does the stern really look like the bow.
