Hinton 15M Plywood Barge Plans
This is a simple barge with flat bottom single chine shape and a "swim" shaped stern (under the waterline similar to narrow boats). The bow would be vertically staved plywood in 2 or 3 overlapping layers. Construction details are available for the hull only and approximately 45 sheets of 18mm ply and 40 sheets of 24mm ply are used for the hull skin.
She may be fitted out to the builders requirements and we can give advice on deck construction etc. She is designed for use as a houseboat in inland waters.
