To haul cabin lumber, I had to build a freight scow. First I designed the scow, assuring that I had the needed displacement to haul over 5000 pounds worth of building materials.  Then I built the scow. I employed simple wood-framed, plywood-sheathed boat building techniques. Since the life and usefulness of this scow were limited, I used cheap common lumber.
