Egret: A Wetlands Punt

Here is a fine little working type punt that feels at home in the marshlands, as well as the open bay waters.She is 14'-9" long and was designed around a working load, with a draft of about 3". The nice flare of her sides gives good stability and the generous beam of 54" allows for a comfortable 48" rowing station. A short skeg keeps her tracking when rowing or punting. The decks are well crowned and the coaming will keep you dry in choppy conditions! There are removable floor boards and a storage rack under the afterdeck. The narrow transom offers stability and more displacement is using a small gas or electric outboard. Approxcimate weight is 200 lbs and she is easily trailable. Primary material calls for a 1/4" and 3/8" marine grade plywood and glued epoxy construction is ideal. No full size lnd steps to take for building.  Plans are $95.00 by check or money order and a builders agreement is available for professional builders.
