Notice the tail
The Beavertail is a fly fishing boat.
It has a 48" bottom, so you don't need to
do any side-scarfing (as you do for the Honky Dory's
The Beavertail's bottom panel is nearly symetrical either side
of the middle, so it has plenty of tail bouyancy to hold
up a rear seated fisherman.
The Beavertail plans include details for building a rear
knee brace, a roped rower's seat (or a simpler hardtop seat)
plus a custom front end that acts as fly line catcher and stripping
basket, as well as a place to stand.
This is one of the few driftboats ever made that trims
properly with a rear-standing fisherman.
