19 ft Steam Pinnace, Design #132

A fine, high transom stern as seen on this little launch is ideal for smaller power plants like steam engines. The extra waterline length will allow it to out-perform similar size boats of the fantail stern model. Add to this, simplicity of construction, and it is surprising that it is not seen more often.

This little boat was drawn especially for the home builder and the plans are very fully detailed. Construction is strip planking overlaid with two layers of cold molded planking for a stiff, light, frameless hull. Suitable for steam engines of 2 - 3 horespower or small electric plants.
