Scow sailing

An easy-to-build dinghy with multiple uses. The scow was designed both to be easy to build and to suit the extensive shallow water. It also was designed to enable it to be rowed, motored, or sailed. So it has a flat (transversely) bottom with several rubbing strakes, leeboards (which allow it to ‘bottom bump’), and a simple balanced lug rig.

The design shows different variations and sizes.
