      I was thinking about a side bracket and long shaft so it looks like I'm not alone with that. I'm also thinking of her as long-term affordable (I hope) housing which would call for shortening the length of the port-hand seat to allow fitting a wood/coal stove with an attached water heater. Otherwise we should suit each other well based on her design as is. More resources and more ambition might allow building Mink, but that looks unlikely. In any case before building Jane I will first build Precious.

      If you would care to offer anything more about this design I would be pleased to hear it. Thanks for writing.

      All the best

      need a bracket on the side and a motor that is light enough to deploy
      or stow while underway.

      Economy Jane is one of my favorites. I'd be glad to hear more about
      what you think of her.

      best regards,

      No flaming, cursing, politics, religion or public mopery. Please be polite.

      If you set out to build an Atkin boat, please do not modify the plans. If you stray from the plans you do so at your own risk and Atkin & Co. will take no responsibility for the performance of the resulting boat.
