Flat BottomScow-Type Boat
FISHERMEN WHO LIKE to work theshallow backwaters and weed patcheson lakes and rivers will find this flat-bot-tom scow-type boat an ideal craft. Althoughthe boat is only 12 ft. long, its wide, flatbottom provides more usable space thanmost round or V-bottom boats of similarsize. Low-cost, readily available materialsare used throughout. Frames, gunwales,deck beams, chine logs, seat stringers andseat back are made of pine lumber. Therunners and chine moldings are solid oak.AB-grade exterior plywood is used for thedeck, bottom and side planking and tran-som3/8-in. stock for the former and 3/4-in.stock for the latter.Start construction by cutting out theplanking. To assure correctly fitted partsand reduce assembly time, make a full-sizehalf pattern of the bottom lengthwise.After tracing one half the bottom from thepattern, the latter is flipped over and theother half is traced on the plywood panelused for this purpose. Next cut the chinelogs, seat stringers and frame members ac-cording to the dimensions given. Positionthe frame side members on each of the ply-wood sides as required. Then glue andtemporarily nail them in place, using smallfinishing nails of a length that will notpenetrate the outer ply. Before the gluesets, turn the sides over and fasten the

frame sides and chine logs with screws, orannular-ring type nails. Such nails may beused in place of screws for fastening mostmembers.Next, nail the seat stringers to the framesides, fasten the bottom frame membersin place, and glue and nail the bottomplanking to the chine log as shown. Ply-wood gussets are nailed and glued on bothsides of frames 1 and 2 as indicated in Figs.1 and 5. The transom consists of two layersof 3/4-in. exterior plywood glued together,and screwed to the sides and bottom as indetail B, Fig. 5. To avoid leaks, cut and fitthe laminated transom accurately, and ap-ply a liberal coating of waterproof glue onall joints.The three seats are installed as in Figs.
