"Pop-Gun"—A Twenty-Foot Runabout
Designed by C. G. Davis

This little runabout, named Pop-Gun by one who saw a model of her, is a 2o-footer of such simple construction that anyone can undertake her construction with certainty of success—that is, anyone who knows enough of the use of tools to build a box. All that is needed is a knowledge of how to use a saw, how to plane the edge of a board straight, and how to nail lumber together. There are very few curved cuts to be made, and nearly every cut is along a straight line that may be snapped with a chalk-line or drawn with a straight edge. In fact, the designing of a boat like this is the hardest part, and that is done. Simplicity in every feature has, of course, been the leading object in designing Pop-Gun, but simplicity is quite possible in a very good little runabout, and Pop-Gun will prove a handy, serviceable, sturdy boat that will carry several people easily, and travel along at about eight miles an hour with a 3-hp. motor.
