Additional Info

Phil Thiel's ESCARGOT is a house/canal boat designed for slow, enjoyable journeys in protected waters.

Plans include 16 sheets, which you can print-out on 11" x 17" paper. If you are familiar with Phil's work, these plans ALSO include four pages of his L'ARK design, which was a modification of ESCARGOT. Construction is considered "simple box-like" marine ply construction for the advanced amateur. Purchase of the digital plans give you rights to build one boat. These are digital downloads, in PDF format. Please note: page J which shows plywood needed omits the 1/2" ply for the aft deck shown on page E.

Length: 18'-6"
Beam: 6'
Draft: 6"
Propulsion: 2-5hp outboard, will gently push you to about 4mph.
Skill needed: Basic
