if it was simple everybody would be doing it…

Here’s a simple boat. It’s a scow and it makes quite a bit of sense…

Designed by Reuel Parker it’s a lot of bang for the buck and a very comfortable floating home… What’s not to like?

Everything is simple, it’s easily put together, and as boats go, is not going to break the bank doing it. Parker has spec’d out mostly cheap lumberyard materials (form-ply and construction grade lumber), a simple affordable rig, and auxiliary power is provided by a simple outboard motor.

Someone with enough budget to buy the materials in one lump and two or three months to build full time would have a very nice boat when the dust settled..


For more info on how you’d actually build such a beast Reuel Parker’s “The New Cold-Molded Boatbuilding” will tell you everything you need to know…
