      I recently completed the Atkin's "Sprite", a 15 ft flat bottom skiff that really moves well with my antique Lauson 6hp.  See it at Atkin's boats and www.tinyurl.com /jb-sflatbottom.

      If I was going to build a little outboard boat for use on inland waterways I would definitely look at 'Sedge'. The square bow of a punt gives a lot of boat for the length. Plus an easy to build shape.

The out board motor is a British seagull century 100 (about 4.5 hp) and the boat should only draw 8". It will need to be able to happily do 10 KPH (6MPH). Also it would need to be big enough to camp on. Any ideas?
