6 Metre Inboard Launch Design #228

For picnicking or day fishing trips, this small inboard launch will be the perfect vehicle.  Plans show a small diesel installation, an antique petrol engine would be another option, or perhaps this is the opportunity to explore electric power.

Construction shown is strip planking over laminated frames with a skin of glass inside and out.  Clinker on bent frames would be the traditional approach and a lot more fun.
