Build a Jiffy Skiff (Pub. No. 7921)

Great for the kids in the swimming pool.

The principal defect of back-yard built boats is that they leak, and the skipper frequently comes home with wet feet. But here is a craft just as dry as the living room floor, and it is easy to make. Ordinary pine lumber is used. The bottom consists of two nine-inch boards with a chine piece all the way around except at the bow, where the stem is to fit. With the aid of a plane and plenty of sandpaper, the chine and bottom boards are fitted perfectly flush. Binding tape augmented by a liberal amount of marine glue used over all joints will keep Junior’s, shoes from becoming even damp.
