Duckboats and other questions
Has anyone on this forum ever built a small one man low profile duck boat? I'm thinking about building a sneakbox style boat, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with those boats. I'm planning to build it out of plywood and then fiberglass it. I'm thinking it will be around 10'-12' and about 4' wide. If it works, I'm going to make it a simple flat bottom boat. I don't plan to put an engine on this boat. It will mostly likely be rowed or poled. As far as general questions go...
What are the advantages and disadvantages of a purely flat hull against a v-hull?
Should I put skegs on the bottom to help it track better when I'm rowing?
Thanks for any replies to this post.
