Handy Punt. Pdf by email or Printed Book

Starting at: $39.60

The punt is one of the most common utility boats. They are fast under moderate power in reasonably smooth water, have a huge initial stability and good weight carrying ability.

The Handy Punt has been designed to make very efficient use of the 4 sheets of plywood. There will be very few offcuts. Do not throw any of the scrap material away - it may be used later. Modifying the plan may result in much material wastage.

The usual problem with punts is the weight of the bottom construction. The Handy punt avoids this by having large external bottom runners which distribute the loads into the seat faces. The epoxy technology allows this approoach as the boat is effectively glued into one piece.

The Handy Punt will lift up onto the bottom runners when lightly laden at higher speeds, this reduces the wetted area for a reduction in drag, and more speed.

It is designed for a 6 to 15hp short shaft outboard, though it can be modified to take a long shaft motor. We suggest 8 to 10hp.

The weight of 110lbs (50kg) should be acheivable using gaboon plywood. It will carry a family of 4 quite happily in calm waters.
