How to Build Pintail Duck Boat Plans

Plans how to build your own pintail duck boat.

Stable and low on the water. Pintail makes an ideal duck boat.As a duck boat, Pintail is small and able, A leakproof, light enough in weight (6-0 lbs.) to be handled by one man, and versatile enough to serve as a year-round fun boat for both children and adults. Begin constructing Pintail by first drawing a full-size paper pattern of #1 and #3 frames (they're the same pattern) and another of the #2 mold frame (Fig. 6}. Also make patterns for the stem, outer stem, and cockpit knees (Fig. 10).

Lay these paper patterns on the framing and stem material, prick the outlines through and saw the component parts to shape. Then reassemble the frame parts on the patterns. Mold frame #2 consists of a bottom member cut from a 2x4 and side members cut from 1x4's; these are sawed so they fit flush into the 2 X 4 bottom member and then joint nailed together. Etc.....
