Houdini--A Take-Apart Skiff

  • Availability: In Stock
  • Pub No.: 5326

by Edwin Monk, N. A.

This 111/2-ff. skiff can be taken apart and stacked to fit into a compact station wagon. Like the lady in the vaudeville act, this boat goes on living after she's sawed in half.

This boat, which is essentially a skiff, requires no jig or setup stringers. Only a small amount of material--the form used temporarily about the middle of the after section--does not become a part of the finished product. Even this can be omitted if care is taken to maintain the width dimension at this point on the hull. The photographs are of the completed boat, except for painting. The boat is not cut in half until everything else has been completed.
