Here’s a no-nonsense boat for anglers who want lots of room and total access around the boat, along with some overnight accommodations. An enclosed cabin includes a full-size v-berth with space for a head below. Yet there’s a full-access recessed deck around the cabin outside. A windshield with side wings protects the helm from wind and spray, and the self-bailing aft cockpit is nearly 14' long.
A variable-angle deep-v hull smooths out the rough stuff with a 40+º v-entry leading aft to a stable 18½º transom vee. Wide chine flats and two lift strakes per side keep her pointed ahead while assuring optimum performance. You can use I/O units to 1300 lbs., or single or twin outboards (25" shaft lengths for singles; 20" or 25" for twins). Other power systems (v-drives, jets, bracket-mounted outboards, etc.) may be suitable with minor modifications. Ample fuel capacity is available in any case.
Plywood hulls use 1/2" total bottom thickness and 3/8" on the sides. Aluminum hulls feature 3/16" bottoms and 1/8" sides. Plans include FULL-SIZE PATTERNS for frame member contours, and include instructions, material listings, and fastening schedule (wood hulls).
