How To Build a Turtle Paddle Boat Plans

How To Build a Turtle Paddle Boat Plans

THERE'S A SUMMER OF FUN AHEAD for young skippers who step aboard this exciting paddle-wheel boat Propulsion is by hand cranks and the rudderless craft is steered by its two paddle wheels. To turn around, one crank is turned forward, the other backwards. The flat bottom 4 x 11 ft. hull is light enough for even a six year old skipper to outdistance dad in a rowboat. The turtle shells over the paddle wheels keep water from splashing into the boat.
No jig is required to build it.The sides and center sections are all clamped together and cut and planed at one time. They must match exactly and the edges must be square to the sides so the bottom will lie flush on all three. Notice that there must be a cutout at the bottom for the 1/2-in. thick plywood bottom.....


These plans were scanned from an old magazine and converted to a convenient downloadable digital PDF file format.
