She is built skiff style by bending the sides around the frames ant fastening the bottom to a pre-attached chine. She has been good to us but we have to face the fact that we no longer have the time to give her all she needs. Location: Great Lakes It was noted today that the contact information in this old post is no longer valid, so hopefully she found a home.

When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
Unless you plan really heavy use on rocky shores, don't see why it would need to be that thick.
Looks like it would sail much better and row a little worse than the Chamberlain dory skiff, as the boat is wider on bottom and in particular wider aft.
Yes, she did have the frames, but if I remember correctly they were plywood, not solid wood. The Bevin's skiff avoids much of the epoxy work that I'm admittedly afraid of having never worked with it, but the glued-lapstrake gives me the look I've been longing for without the weight. A 14' glued-lapstrake Swampscott Sailing Dory would be great too but I worried it'll be cramped. I strongly suspect that if the requirement to be loaded by yourself and teenage daughter is primary, that you'll need to forego the lapstrake beauties that we all drool over and go for something in skin-on-frame (SOF) and probably with a pram bow. I've done a lot of cartopping with canoes and pulling boats, and clearly understand just how little upper body strength many females have, how easily they can pull muscles, and how that lovely wind you were sailing in can become a serious hazard when trying to reload the boat back on top of your vehicle. I know I should be taking your advice, but sometimes we are who we are and we want what we want. The lines of a herring skiff are pretty basic, you should be able to draw one up after looking at a few. I believe there are several designs in Aluminum for this exact use, one listed above, so it is probably better for him to take that route. Workstar Landing Craft: this is a UK company that designs and sells kits for aluminium workboats including a range of landing craft.

Next, not having a solid transom in front means you have to have a bodacious framework in front to keep the sides from flapping. Next, converting S&G to aluminum will, most likely, negate any guarantees that would normally come with plywood plans. I saw one at the boat show in Toronto in 2009 that had a built in trailer tongue on the stern and retractable suspension built into closable bays in box sponsons. Have built a P.Bolger Diablo 15 from aluminum as well as a scaled up versions at 18' and 22' . His is made for a quad and LOA is about 21 feet, I doubt you can get it at 16' unless you sit on it whicl boating.
While I have been dancing in circles about a catamaran or tri boat, I'm realizing that because of my wanting to haul a motorcycle, this LC would be the easiest, cheapest and most efficient considering all three of those requirements.
I'm going to need to find plans that can stretch out to about 26' to 30' due to my cabin requirement.
Looking for folks that may have or know the whereabouts of plans or line drawings or offset tables of ANY Chesapeake Bay Deadrise workboat or buyboat. I can offer a couple of potential sources, in addition to the good advise to check with the CBMM.
And I'm sure that there are at least a couple available from the Smithsonian Ships Plans division from the collection of unpublished Howard Chapelle designs. Both Chapelle and Sucher studied and took lines from a wide variety of existing and vanishing boat types. There is also a book called _Deadrise and Cross-Planked_ by Larry Chowning, but I think it is more of a folk history study and am not sure if there are any actual plans in it.
This link relates to the Chesapeake Bay Deck Boat, the Elva C, the museum has in care and may give you some helpful info to further your research.
The chesapeake bay maritime museum in st michaels has plans for a round transom deadrise that they have in their collection.
This cost includes a high level of outfit and finish you can be proud of after putting the effort into building this fine boat. To get WoodenBoat delivered to your door or computer, mobile device of choice, etc, click WB Subscriptions.

Having had a look at the study plan, it seems to indicate that it can be built in plywood, but no details are provided in the plans. Is there some sort of general rule of thumb for converting bottom and planking thicknesses from traditional to plywood? My approach to a question like that would be to look at similar boats of a similar size from respected designers, and follow their lead. I know one designer that won't even entertain that idea because it would take a re-engineering of the entire design. The 15 was designed for ply and the aluminum build was a peice of cake, and I wouldn't hesitate to build the bigger versions from plywood. Really, you need close to 6' of beam unless your quad will run forever, since newer ones are wider now, so thinking ahead you'll want your boat to meet future requirements I would think. Deadrise in the Cheaspeake refers to a method where the boat is built with hard chines and the bottom planks running from keel to chine. That SOF is a pretty one as far as they go and I suppose if someone gave it to me I would put it to good use.
Just guessing but I'd say 16' or less is out because making a boat that short wide enough for the quad would make the boat overly wide for good performance. They might be able to indicate what would or wouldn't work in terms of size and construction method. Construction is plywood and epoxy with just enough traditional details to make the project rewarding when finished. Would consider the Whisp, but being 250 lbs and rather stiff in my movements, she's probably too tender for me. This is our fishing boat ,Bumps, she was built here in Rock Hall and even though she has a deadrise type bottom, she is not refered to as a deadrise as she was not built to be a workboat, but a charter fishing boat.
She was built to look like a 1961 Pacemaker Sea Skiff, which she does until you look at her bottom.
