20ft Workboat 'Stevedore' Design # 258

The name says it all – a miniature tow boat with potential for work or pleasure usage.  A snug cabin with inside steering to get out of the weather, minimum galley, berth and cabin heater, what more do we need for poking about the waterfront or perhaps more distant wanderings..  Construction is traditional carvel on bent frames.  Five sheets of drawings are fully detailed for upside down construction.  An absorbing project for a small shop space.
