Rifleman is certainly my dream boat for that class, but I haven't had a lot of experience with lapstrake runabouts.
I obsessed at great lengths in some earlier threads about outboard wells and rough water, but have again downsized my ambitions and am pushing off in calmer seas these days.
I'd guess you'll find a lot more current plans (ie, living designers) for strip plank or ply panel that could be adapted for ply lap.
Paul Fisher has a 16' lobster style that will plane nicely with similar performance to Rifleman. I was previously thinking about low and slow non-planing types for rougher waters, but am now considering the bump to 20 hp in an ultralight planing package. Nice thread Gillig, I was thinking about clinker ply for my low horsepower planing thread, have to say rifleman seems a sensible and good looking choice. Pallets are the flat wooden structures that are commonly used in shipping industry for transportation of food, cloths, medicines and other delicate items. The wood which is used to make pallets is not of perfect kind so it is available in a cheap price.
The use of pallet wood is not only an easy job and saves our time but also an inexpensive solution to fulfill our need of beautiful chair. The pallet chair can be a perfect start towards the making of more beautiful and complex pallet furniture out of recycled pallets. She is something like a Hampton boat, something like the lobster and fishing craft of the New England coast, something like a power dory in arrangement, and something like many pleasure boats. Shrimp should not offer much to bother you in building her; the item most likely to take time and thought is the reverse curve in the frames and planking aft, but like everything else in this world, it can be done by planning. In planking the only place to bother you is that hollow aft, but by laying off the widths of plank strakes as we instructed in the February issue and then using strakes of half that width where the hollow comes the narrow planks will fit in the hollow and if well steamed no trouble will occur. The cost of such a boat as Shrimp would be under $1,000 for a home job, very much less if you installed a rebuilt motor. It is understood that, whether or not described in these specifications, all items of equipment, either shown on plans or called for in these specifications, or called for by the U. All material and workmanship must be first class and all material or workmanship found defective shall be removed and made good at the builder's expense. Entire interior and exterior of hull to receive coat of priming paint except work which is to finish natural. Exterior of hull above the painted water line to be given at least three coats of yacht white, except sheer ribband which is to be finished natural. Interior of hull, tops of seats, interior of lockers, cockpit floor, etc., to be given two coats of gray paint.

Its originally designed for strip plank but the designer notes it could be built lapstrake from the same molds. Some industries give these used pallets without any cost in different auctions specially managed to discard the pallets so you can get pallets according to your need without spending much. The pallet chair can be finished beautifully by giving some classic look; this can be done by polishing its surfaces or by panting it with some bright and attractive colors. The two 8-gallon fuel tanks are under the seat on each side, short feed lines being required. Don't try to steam bend short stock on quick bends; use long stock with plenty of length to spare on each end, then the hard turn in the bend coming near the middle rather than near the end of the piece will be done easier.


The whole operation is similar to that described in the February issue as building boats follows the same procedure in almost all cases.
To be white oak sided 3 inches, molded as per plan, to be rabbeted for planking, aft end to take heel of rudder and to be tapered around opening at propeller. To be white oak sided 5 inches, molded 1 ¼ inches, secured by floor timber fastenings.
To be white oak sided 3 inches, molded as per plan, secured to keel and shaft log as shown.
To be of white oak sided 1 inch, molded 1 inch, steam bent, spaced 10 inches on centers except as noted. To be yellow pine 3 ½ x 1 inches secured to frames by heavy galvanized nail riveted over ring each end and galvanized boat nail, one of each at each frame.
To be oak or mahogany 5 x ¾ inches secured with brass screws, heads countersunk and plugged.
Runs to be 1 inch and these to be grooved for ends of beams at each end of companionway slide to run in.
On forward deck extending down to keel oak 4 x 4 inch bitt to be secured into stem and through 10 x 1 inch oak partner fastened under beams and through filling of oak between beams. Two 12 x 18 inch seamless steel fuel tanks complete with vent, filling pipe threaded into filling deck plate in seat top and into bushing on tank, with outlet, and strapped and chocked in position to be installed as shown. Some projects last for months or longer, as crafters work hard to bring the picture they see in their heads to life. Some of us old retired guys have to pay closer attention to our budgets than when we were working. She'll take you out on a fishing trip when the sky is gray and the wind and sea both very active and she'll bring you back; she is seaworthy. She is quite beamy, 7 feet, which affords plenty of comfort, steadiness, stability, and liberal deadrise which makes for an easily driven hull in spite of the liberal beam.
A thwart ship seat with side seats extending forward of that provide seating capacity sufficient for quite a few persons. In bending in the forward radius of the coaming make that forward section about 10 feet long at least and that will bring the ends well back from the curve onto the straighter part of the curve. Inspection Regulations, or manifestly necessary to carrying out the intent of these specifications, shall be done or furnished by the boat builder as a part of the contract. Transom to be two thicknesses of ¾ inch cedar, pine, or oak laid together with thick coating of white lead. Supported every other beam alternately port and starboard of center by 1 x 1 ¾ inch posts.
Center boards to width of 12 inches to be cleated together so as to be lifted out for inspection of bilge. Ends of beams covered outside by A x 2 inch oak or mahogany piece and oak or mahogany 1 inch half-round. Cushions to be 2 ½ inch thick kapoc filled, khaki covered, made with brass grommets and in best manner. For fishing, a round bottopm ( multichine) boat like Rifleman would be less than ideal in many areas where there is boat traffic, or where its choppy. Some pallets are sometimes treated with harsh chemicals during the shipping of items and may be contaminated with different germs and insects so while choosing a pallet to make some furniture you need to be careful. The pallet chair can be created to be placed in a children room you can also place a small cushion to make it more comfortable for your kid.


Of moderate speed, good carrying capacity, wholesome appearance, and sturdy construction, Shrimp will afford all the fun you can crowd into a season.
There is no reverse curve to the forward frames to bother the amateur builder, but in order to place the engine way aft and allow a large cockpit as required in such a boat it is necessary to have a reverse curve at the heel of the frames aft.
If you do find it too hard to bend in the three or four frames there that have quick bends then cut out the shape near the heel (bottom) of the frames and then lap the frame above the quick turn onto the sawed lower section. I am sure it is fine underway, but while anchored or drifting to fish, it will rock quite a bit. The pallets are usually processed properly cleaned restored and are finished to make effective functional piece of furniture.
She will tote your guests and all the bags and bundles they can bring along from the steamer or railroad connection down the bay to your summer home. Space is provided for any suitable engine and we would call a suitable motor one of 10 to 15 h.p. Over the cockpit can be fitted a waterproof spray hood of either the type that folds lying around the forward end of the coaming or the type which has a bow frame and slides from one side at the coaming over the bow to the other coaming. But try to steam them in; it can be done by steaming them well, bending them carefully and makes a neater job. To be laid smooth planked in narrow strakes, with tight seams lightly caulked with yacht cotton, payed with paint, and filled flush with white lead putty or seam composition.
Forward piece of coaming to be about 10 feet long, ends to be fastened to oak, cypress, or mahogany blocks secured to after sections of coaming on each side. When you want to show off the beauties of the shore round the Cape you can pile your family, guests, the kids and the dog aboard and there'll be room; this isn't a 25-foot runabout seating six with half the length utilized by deck you can't use. From the aft end of the spray hood an apron extends to the forward end of the house and buttons along the coaming too, so that the boat can be enclosed when leaving her at the mooring. The frames that extend from sheer to sheer amidships should be well steamed, then pushed down onto the keel, having the middle of the frame there and with plenty to spare at the ends.
The space at the forward end of the forward seats has been left open for the stowage of bulky items of equipment.
Fasten and clamp down the frame where it crosses the keel and then force the frame down to the rib bands and clamp them there. She would make a good tender for a small yacht club; she could prove very useful delivering goods or towing scows or rafts or as a ferry between shore and a steamer in the harbor.
The slide over the motor has been made wide so as to allow maximum space to get into the little cabin over the motor. By carefully bending a well steamed rib it would surprise one what bends it will make, but it must be done gently and firmly.
Balance of planking to be fastened with copper wire nails riveted over burrs, two fastenings in each plank except three rivets in sheer strake and two rivets in addition to one screw in garboard strake. This is simply a shelter for the motor and equipment, not being intended for a regular cabin, but in view of the fact that many young fellows are making short cruises in their open boats we have indicated a couple of pipe berths which can be fitted in that cabin, as well as transoms and shelves.
There is a bulkhead just forward of the motor which will separate any gasoline, oil, grease, etc., from the forward half of the bilges.
Over the flywheel is a large hinged section of the seat so that the motor can be turned over, and the reverse lever, or the lever for controlling the reversible propeller, if either are fitted, should be brought to a point inside the cabin door where the boat operator can readily reach it.
