Swamp Rat is an easily built plywood canoe, modeled after the pirogue, the time-tested utility boat of the Louisiana bayous. She incorporates many of the qualities that have made this type of boat one of the handiest and most popular of small craft for use on sheltered waters, whether for fishing, waterfowl hunting, or just exploring. Swamp Rat incorporates moderate rocker for maneuverability, narrow beam for easy propulsion, moderate side flair for reserve buoyancy, shallow draft and other features that result in a very attractive and efficient watercraft. She has proven to be quite fast and maneuverable both with a single occupant in the comfortable webbed middle seat, with a double paddle, or with two people in the ends with canoe paddles.
