This is a single page plan drawn with the novice boatbuilder in mind. Drawn to 1-1/2" scale, it shows everything you need in non-technical form and is clearly annotated. Intended for inclusion in the book, Building the 9'7" Maine Skiff, is available separately as well. And the skiff? She's a handy little boat that's suitable for use in harbors and ponds and a great choice for introducing a youngster to rowing. 'Readily built with cedar bottom and sides, or with plywood. You can see from the photo above that she is flat sided, which means that there is no need to spile her planking. With the exception of the lower edge of the side panel (if you happen to use plywood) or the lower edge of the first plank (if you are using boards for the sides), the plank edges are straight. Her sheer, which is to say the curvature of the top edge of the side when seen in profile, is a natural function of the angle of the sides.
In any case, she is a straightforward boat to build, and a very serviceable waterborn utility vehicle.
