5.0 Metre Motor Launch Design #261

 

Evolved as a larger version of the 13ft launch design #178, this 16ft boat offers better speed and room for passengers.  Like #178 it is an intricate piece of work and will be an absorbing building project for those with some experience.  The construction method shown on the drawings is double fore and aft planking over steam bent frames for a stable, lasting structure.  Put this one in the heirloom category.

The drawings are in metric units.
