New Look on a Old Plan!!!

Post by LIGHT KEEPER'S KID » Wed Jul 14, 2010 8:04 pm

Well this is going to be one of next two Strippers that are in the works. Just got these plans hot off the press today from Matt. Lets see who can guess what Old Plan this Was. The specs are basically 15'x32" :D

Pics down this page :D

Yep, it's going to be the W-TV :lol: Matt is going to post pic today and some are going to be surprised on the deck changes that I had Matt make to the plan. I've been mulling over what JEM boat I was going to build next for about a year now and I'm hoping this will be the perfect river boat for myself.

He came up with an interesting concept that's used on the modern shallow water skiffs: Flatish bottom with flared, rounded sides. Should provide lots of initial stability with very predictable secondary stability.

Drawn per Mike's specs:

The sides will be a bit challenging to strip but with using beveled edge, shouldn't be impossible.

The pics put a big smile on my face when I first saw it and I hope the same one is there when I get to paddle her :D I've been waiting to long to build my next boat and the fever is really setting in now :D Thanks Matt 8)
