Shallow Draft Bass Boat

by Hi Sibley

Here is an ideal craft to reach the best bass fishing area;—where they feed in shallow water among the spatter-docks. There’s no propeller to foul in water weeds and, with a flat bottom and a 4 ft. beam along its entire length, the draft is at a minimum. The little air-cooled engine is simple to install and it has paddle-wheel propulsion; no shaft log is required. With 3/8-in. exterior marine plywood in a single panel on the bottom, you only need to calk along the chine lines. If full length panel of 4 x 15 ft. plywood is not available for the bottom, use one 8 ft. and one 7 ft. panel, joined under a cross member.
