Location: Eustis, FL They aren't commonly pre-made, but rather built up during the construction of the boat. The slots your refer to in this case are just spacers, mounted on the inside of the planking, which serve to position another structural element (sheer clamp) further inboard.
By looking carefully at similar arrangements on other boats you can see how they're made and it's not especially difficult to muster.
Location: British Columbia Hi again Par, the plans are based on an 8' pram boat that I have attached.
Location: Eustis, FL I've used those oil filled heaters in freezing weather, but my freezing weather is considerably different then yours.
Location: Eustis, FL General, I try to keep the heater from touching the tarp or boat near the heater.
These metal strips are attached to the rail and offer far better wear and abrasion protection. As for the seats in the ends of the boat, first it's not a good place for seats in a boat this small. A buoyancy compartment in the ends of the boat is a good idea and needn't be especially fancy.


When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. My dad built two 8' Seashell prams from kits in the early sixties, one for me and one as a dinghy for the family cruising sailboat.
Maybe next year, but we already have a perfectly good sailboat that isn't getting much use anymore because my bones are all starting to ache and I just can't be bothered to do the work sailing requires.
I was just looking at that sampan drawing in a collection of Rudder articles today at the library!
The ends of the clamp typically fall into knees, which help tie the sides of the boat to the ends. These are structural elements and you should have a fair understanding of the forces involved, before making changes. Cover the part to cure with a tarp, sealing it to the ground with the heater under the tarp.
They also make them in aluminum and plastic, but usually are specifically shaped to fit production boats. It is a good place for storage and built in floatation, but you really don't want people sitting there.

I would think that look would be un appealing having those plys showing, or you think otherwise? I don't know why the plans don't do this, which suggests the designer isn't very experienced. Boats this small, really want people sitting in the middle, where their weight will not upset things. Also some other things to think about such as a place to mount anchor pully systems on the front and or back, as well rod holders which would be an added asset I believe. I have fly fished for over 25 years and know that without the anchors you may as well fish on the shore.
