Pack Rat: An attempt at a cartop carrier boat.

PICT0036The second boat I built was an 8′ V bottom pram/scow shaped boat that I built modified to use as a cartop carrier.  The boat was based upon Gavin Atkin’s Flying Mouse but modifed by yours truly so that I could use it as a cartop carrier.  Never got the watertight seal between the deck and the hull quite right and ended up bonding the two making a permanent boat.  PICT0014Had a nice built in seat, push-pull steering and a lug rig.  One of the most comfortable boats to sail despite its small size.  Also, the photo of my wife and daughter in the boat won a photo contest at Duckworks.  I gave this to my fatherkidmouse1-in-law.kidmouse2
