Uncle John's John Boat
by Ken Abrahams abrahams@structurex.net 

The Uncle John John boat. This one is 12'.  This is a simple boat to build. The kit contains front and aft transoms and two sets of seats, all cut out. All you do is add 1/4" plywood and some strips.  I also added a front seat with flotation. With an old Evinrude 3 hp weedless, it goes 5 mph. With an 8 hp that wasn't running good, on a plane at 15 mph. Will probably do 20 now.
