How to Build a 17 ft Seabright Skiff Boat Plans
Plans how to build a seabright skiff boat plans.
HAPPY Clam is the latest of over 65 boats having this unusual hull form that have come from the boards of the Atkin family during the past 25 years. They have varied in size from the 17-footer shown here to a 305-foot shallow-draft tanker developed during the past war. Each has proven seaworthy and successful in attaining high speed with low power.
Among the inherent advantages of this hull form are its shallow draft, great stability, and low center of gravity. Full protection for the propeller is provided by the box keel. Flow of unbroken water to the propeller is made possible by tapering the keel to the propeller post. The relatively wide, flat keel maintains the boat in a level position when beached or trailer borne. The nearly level shaft angle, which is of value in performance, is not possible to achieve in any other hull form.
