Following the traditional North American theme is this unusual craft. She is of simple 3/8’’ ply hard chine, flat bottom construction over stout pine frames, with a simple unstayed sprit rig. The original craft were used for fishing and cargo carrying on estuaries and creeks. She has room for a family of 6 and their gear, and could be adapted for some sleeping accommodation under a boom tent.
