Baby Killdeer--A 12 ft Plywood Runabout

  • Availability: In Stock
  • Pub No.: 5677

by Weston Farmer

Convenient  in size for easy trailing is "Baby Killdeer", just under 12’ long and with about 57” of beam. Weighing in the neighborhood of 150 pounds, she can nicely handle motors of 6 and 7 hp, and won’t shy at 15 hp. She is too small for the 25 hp mills, as she is really a very small boat. With two people aboard (and this is quite a load, poundwjse, for any 12-footer) and with a 10 hp Mercury, she can do about 22 mph. For her length, this seems rocket sneed.
