Two wooden Row Boat Plans - ebook free
SKU: twrbp/ebook/000

These are two plans for rowboat. The first uses one sheet of plywood to build the whole thing, and the second is another traditional row boat.

From the plywood plans: This11-foot hull will cost you only $35 to build and comes out of a single sheet of plywood. We used Weldwood Royal Marine Plywood for the job. It can be put together by almost any workshopper with a minimum amount of tools and time.

It rows smartly and gets a real burst of speed from a 3 to 5-hp outboard, actually planing like a runabout. It won't tip or trip with its generously flared sides and will take a rough clop. It can be lifted on top of a car by one man. It will carry up to four persons. The editors feel that it's impossible to get so much water transport anywhere for so little cost.

In cutting and assembly, you deal directly with the planking, first and last. Except for the transom, no other ribs are used- No precision jigging, alignments, plumbs, squares, angles, rakes, deadrise, coordinates, lofting or full-size layout is necessary. It can be done in a weekend, or if you prefer to work leisurely, two weekends.

The second plans are are simple and to the point, as is the boat. At twelve feet and four seats - one aft, two in the middle, and one tiny front seat - this looks like a good traditional boat.

Free ebook - A Boat Anyone Can Build
SKU: abacb/ebook/000

These plans are called the "Anyone's Boat", because as they claim, anyone can build it.

You can power it with oars or outboard. Neither time nor cost should stop you. About $12 and 16 hours will complete the job.

For it's true that anyone can build this boat. If you are just plain anyone, beg a few dollars (about 12), borrow some tools (a hammer, chisel, plane, saw and a heavy drift), buy your materials and steal some time (around 16 hours if you don't waste any of it). You'll wind up with a strong boat that will perform well with any outboard from 1.5 to 22 horsepower and will even respond to rowing.

The lack of a framework is the secret of the simple construction. The sides fair naturally around the single mold stick inserted between the stem and the stern. You can bang the job together with about four pounds of eight-penny nails—use galvanized.
