Sea Skeeter--An Ideal Boat for Young Mariners

  • Availability: In Stock
  • Pub No.: 5125

This unique craft is designed for the young skipper who has had no previous experience in marine construction, and who wants an inexpensive, light boat in which to learn the A-B-C’s of navigation. By using a single sheet of galvanized iron for the entire bottom the job of caulking is practically eliminated, for the joint between bottom and side-members is made water-tight when assembled by means of a strip of cloth soaked in white lead. Also, the builder need not worry over a centerboard-well because the centerboard is hinged to the bottom and no opening is required. The mast together with sail and boom can be lifted out of the step instantly and stowed, the only rigging being a single main sheet. Steering is with a paddle which comes in handy during a calm.
