is an enlarged version of the Flat Skiff 11' 6". She requires two more
sheets of plywood but is still very easy and fast to build. If you ever
thought of buying one of the aluminum utility boats sold by department
stores, build this one instead. She will cost you less, look better and
you can customize her easily to fit your preferences. She is designed
for small outboards up to 7.5 hp but a 1.5 hp outboard will move her at
hull speed. She is not a planing boat: look at the rocker in the bottom
but she can be rowed in case of need.
This boat is built from flat plywood panels assembled with epoxy-fiberglass
tape. The construction method is called "stitch and glue". For a detailed
description of the stitch and glue boat building method, see our "How
To" section where you will find a complete illustrated tutorial as
well as information about epoxy, fiberglass and plywood.
FL14 skiff is very easy and fast to build thanks to her flat bottom. There
are no plywood scarfs, we use simple butt blocks. The sides are cut from
standard sheets of plywood.
No woodworking skills or special tools are required.
Except for the buoyancy foam, there are no options for the FL14 but many
builders have customized her to fit their needs.
from our BOM)
BOM list materials based on our standard layout and includes a 15% waste
factor for resin and fiberglass. For plywood, we use standard sheets 4'
x 8' (122 x 244 cm). Please read the building notes and see the plans
for detailed specifications.
This boat can be built from inexpensive exterior plywood since it is completely
coated with epoxy resin.
