Here is a little boat I made for my daughters.

I came across the plans on the internet and they are likely out of an old popular science type magazine from the 50's - 60's if I had to guess.


It has a 3 hp two cycle trolling motor and runs about 10 mph top speed.


It is a great kids boat at 4' wide by 8' long and just over 146 lbs wet.


It was a lot of fun and now my wife is after me to build a pontoon boat for us. (procrastinating)


Cheers,

Bill

It looks sad now.

Other pieces in the same room delivered previously:


Low painted cabinet with birds-eye maple top.


Hutch.

Still have two chairs with turned front legs in production, and the today customer requested that I add two benches to the order. Nice customer.

Nice. I had a local tin knocker make a set of panniers for me, and need to find a gasket like the one on yours. Where'd you get it?
