The 12'Taw is a simple 'V' bottomed plywood runabout for two people.
Construction starts with the plywood frames/bulkheads being slotted onto a plywood central girder and the transom fitted. Bottom stringers are added to stiffen the bottom area of the hull and then the hull panels are marked and cut out and fitted before the chine seams are epoxied and glassed. Decking can be simple plywood or ply overlaid with hardwood strips to give a 'laid' deck effect.
She will take outboards up to around 35hp.
