DRAFT 
9 3/4" Static, Laden
SUGGESTED POWER
--25 to 75 HP
TYPE 
Tropical and sub-tropical flats fisherman/guide boat, especially
suited for bone fish, tarpon and permit fishing in the very shallow sand flats of the Florida Keys and Bahamas Banks. Also suited for river, estuarine and bar fishing, the hull will handle a moderate chop at high speeds.
CONSTRUCTION
Cold-molded plywood/epoxy covered with epoxy-impregnated Xynole- polyester fabric. Two-pound density closed-cell polyester foam  is used in sealed compartments, ice box and bait well. All wood components are epoxy-sealed and epoxy-painted during the construction process. Final finish is linear-polyurethane. The hull is built of sheet plywood (3/8" bottom, 1/4" sides and decks) molded over five bulkheads, transom, stem and keelson. Longitudinals are cut from 3/4" Douglas fir stock.
PLANS 
Full construction plans (3 pages) plus Notes. Although
construction is straightforward, the boat is complex enough that perhaps it should not be attempted by the first-time amateur.
