Additional Info

Subtitled "A 12' Skiff for Oar and Sail" the boat can be planked in cedar, white pine, or spruce. Same options for the bottom, although you could opt for top-quality ply, especially if you were to car-top the boat.

You can build directly from this book, as there are mold patterns with detailed measurements included. She is 12' long with a 3' 10-3/4" beam.
