How to Build Flat Bottom Scow-Type Boat Plans

Plans how to build your own Flat Bottom Scow-Type Boat.

FISHERMEN WHO LIKE to work the shallow backwaters and weed patches on lakes and rivers will find this flat-bottom scow-type boat an ideal craft. Although the boat is only 12 ft. long, its wide, flat bottom provides more usable space than most round or V-bottom boats of similar size.

Low-cost, readily available materials are used throughout. Frames, gunwales, deck beams, chine logs, seat stringers and seat back are made of pine lumber. The runners and chine moldings are solid oak. AB-grade exterior plywood is used for the deck, bottom and side planking and transom— 3/8-in. stock for the former and 3/4-in. stock for the latter.
