Dory Boat Plans - Building Small Wooden Boats Dories are small boats with flat bottoms and are made of wood, although later versions also make use of aluminum and fiberglass. You could build it in clinker, but with only 15" sides, you don't have to go to that much trouble. WP Stephens classic Canoe and Boat Building (Dover Press reprint of the 1898 original) has the proportions and construction details for a shapely punt with a longitudinal, batten-seam bottom in its flat-bottomed boat section very similar to your jonboat.
I'd bet you could have a simple jon (flat panel designs) designed for a very reasonable price and with this type of boat, you would use minimal materials for lots of strength.
You can dislike plywood as much as you like but it's engineering characteristics say you can build far lighter with ply than you ever could with lumber.
Plywood, being more dimensionally stable and much stiffer in relation to it's thickness can be assembled with glass and epoxy resin. Greg C - this is not meant as an attack on you personally, but we get a LOT of requests for recommendations for boats that can carry multiple people, sail and motor, and be cartopped.


I'm just about ready to assign a number to the new-builder posts that include cartopping as a requirement, #127 perhaps. As someone who owns (and has owned) a number of small boats and trailers, I clearly understand that boat trailers can be expensive, a hassle to register and store, and not fun to maintain. If cartopping is an absolute and unavoidable requirement for this jonboat build, then plywood or thin-strip-built will be the only way to keep the weight manageable. I've cartopped canoes on a lot of different vehicles for several thousand miles, VW poptop campers being the majority, and have no problem with either the concept or the work involved. I'm sure you've already figured this out Greg, but whether the boat weighs 120lbs or 190lbs is kind of moot, as you aren't gonna put either boat on a car rack either single-handed or easily. Small trailers OTOH, are cheap, can be pulled by the smallest car, and the boat is easily launched and retrieved single-handed.

With lumber the scantlings have to be about double and the glue and screw method of assembly is what is called for. Dories are modest boats with categorical bottoms and are made of wood, although ulterior versions besides take a leak utilization of Al and fiberglass. Dory Boat Plans - Squidoo : Welcome to Squidoo Have you thought about building a Dory Boat - but don't know where to get started?
