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

56" bottom).

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.
