A small family powerboat
Featured in Design Sketchbook from WoodenBoat Magazine: This is the 3-D concept drawing and design profile you can read in WB No. 275, July/August 2020.
MASH is a small powerboat with a big mission: She’s meant to carry a family of five—and perhaps six—on daytime adventures and occasional overnights on Lake Pend Oreille in northern Idaho.

The cozy cabin can have as many as four berths: two conventional ones, and two removable pipe berths above them. The cockpit settees also convert to berths.
A well-fitted canvas enclosure turns the cockpit and helm area into an auxiliary cabin. The galley is also in this space.
