http://chestofbooks.com/home-improvement/woodworking/Beginners/Scows-And-Punts-Continued.html

I was poking around again and found this link to "Woodworking for Beginners: A manual for Amatuers". there are a couple of boat plans in this book. the link to the table of contents is at the bottom of the page. The plans are all later, but could be modifed to make them more PC.

Great site. Yep, scows are handy boats. Relatively easy to build, and both stable and capacious. And from what I've read they're under-represented in colonial reenactment.

I'm working on my second one now. Built the first in '98, and I learned a few things that have come in handy this time around. Here is the period pattern that I've worked from....
