- Nov 2, 2000Petes right the Brick is an answer. Another might be a
trad dory which with good freeboard can give real volume
in a balanced hull buildable without plans. The process was
described, complete with photo sequence, in Woodenboat
Magazine about 1-2 years ago.
Which I guess is a plan anyway!
If you (or anyone) are
interested in this approach contact me off list and I'll dig
up the issue number (non-Bolger = off list)
Also if the punts so narrow you may as well get a nice looking,
faster punt with a sharp end ie a pirouge!

1>>>> I like the simplicity of the Elegant Punt,
but I need a larger boat.
Given the very large number of designs out there for punts of
different descriptions, why not keep looking. I built an Elegant
Punt, and I was not especially pleased with it. It is very narrow and
high-sided, compared with what I was used to in a yacht tender.
If you need more capacity, have a look at the Brick.
