A Simple Law of
Building a Self Bailing Boat
A couple years ago I decided to construct an aluminum
flat bottom skiff in such a way that I will not have to bail it out after
a rainy day. Living in Southeast Alaska this seems a reasonable idea.
The design is one quite popular in the area. Check out my site
