Row it... Use it with any small outboard.. . Carry it atop your car.

LOA 11' 6", BEAM 4' 8", WEIGHT 110 LBS.

"Moppett" is large enough to accommodate four people, yet light enough to be carried atop your car or on a small trailer. She rows easily and can be used with a small outboard motor, not to exceed five hp. Thanks to her V bottom, she will be much more seaworthy than the usual flat-bottom rowboat. By following the method of fabrication described here, you can build "Moppet" in a fraction of the time required for the average boat of this type—and she’ll actually be stronger than if conventional methods were used. Construction is not difficult. Anyone handy with tools should be able to turn out from one to 100 replicas of Moppet for pleasure or profit.
