30 Grit: quick build flat bottom skiff

bowsideBuilt this 12′ flat-bottomed skiff based upon David Beede’s Summer Breeze when I learned my wife’s family reunion was by Lake Fontana in North Carolina.  Made the transom a bit deeper to take the weight of an outboard.  Rigged it with a lug rig and learned the disadvantages of having a daggerboard trunk in the rowing thwart.  Never had a dry pair of pants on that boat!  Gave it to my neighbor.
