How To Build a Dolly Varden Outboard Boat Plans

Lakers will like the smooth lines of Dolly Varden that scoots along with any outboard in the under 7 Hp class in choppy or smooth water. Dolly is a strip boat fashioned like the hundreds of similar boats built by craftsmen of the old school, and still being used because strip construction turns out a tight, durable, cheap and easy-to-build boat that has real water kindliness and handling ability. About $60 will pay for materials to build either 13- or 15 1/2-foot model and if you can part with her, she'll market for $225 to $350.. Building any Dolly Varden is a good way to get acquainted with the blessing of steam bending frames long considered a bugaboo. Actually, a steam box is a cheap and effective "tool" and anyone who can boil oatmeal can make a steam box say "uncle." Either the 13- or 15 1/2-foot models will ride safely on top of a car as you take off for your favorite fishing grounds. The 13 footer handles easier on the ground, but the fifteen is better in the water. There's only about $5 difference in costs so take your choice and let's get started.
