Just in case anyone who
saw the pictures of the boat in model
making article, here are some particulars.
I've given this boat the rather unimaginative name "Garvey
16". In reality, she is a 15' 10" LOA x 5' 9" beam.
The boat is intended to be a sturdy and seaworthy little outboard
skiff that would be good as a fishing boat, a camp boat, and an
all around good utility craft. She's higher sided than the flat
bottom "honky drownders", as Robb White calls them,
stacked out in front of your local WalMart. The multichine bottom
shape is intended to give more reliable handling than a flattie
while still offering good low power performance. She won't ride
as good as true V-bottom, but it will be better than a flattie.
Suggested power is 15-35 HP.

The plywood bill looks like 6
sheets of 3/8" and 3 sheets of 1/2".
I drew this boat with the idea of building it for myself, but
since I sold the motor I was planning on using that plan has been
put on hold for a while. The plans are to the point that an experienced
builder could get it together. With proper encouragement and enough
interest, I would get them to the point where a less experienced
builder could get one together. Any readers who were seriously
interested in this boat can write me at firstname.lastname@example.org
if they'd like to explore this design any further.
