This hull is designed for use as an easily car-topped fishing boat and was originally designed for a fly fisherman in Texas. It will perform very well for use in lakes, rivers and protected coastal waters. It is a planing type hull designed for use with a small outboard motor. Up to twelve horsepower outboards can be used with this small craft if sufficient flotation is built into the seats in the hull. The twelve foot hull with two foam flotation seats built in will weigh less than 85 lbs. It is a strong , lightweight hull that can be easily transported to a favorite fishing area. If your not into fishing use it as a small runabout just for fun! Although designed originally as a twelve footer, this Fisherman dinghy can be built in lengths (LOA) of twelve or fifteen feet, simply by changing the station spacing and the length of the strongback. Specifications are provided for both lengths (LOA) twelve and fifteen feet. The same mold patterns are used for both lengths. The displacement, load capacity and hydrostatic calculations are different for each length. When you purchase the plans package for this dinghy you will receive full size patterns for the eleven station molds and the stem and transom pieces and the most comprehensive construction manual currently available for amateur boat builders. The manual provides a complete written description and a photographic illustration of each step of the construction process. It is a lot of fun, building your own fishing boat!
This easily car topped fishing boat will have you at your favorite fishing hole at any time you like and at a moments notice.
