Introducing - Egress (RYD25.3)
This is the second smallest in a series of riverboat design, ranging is size from 24' to 50'. Shes a very simple build, flat bottomed and once again I've doubled up the planking on the bottom to make her tough. This boat was originally intended for construction with little more than big box store materials. She has evolved a bit, but she still can use mostly big box store goods.
Outboard powered and because of her shape, very economical to operate, though restricted to displacement speeds. Intended as a weekend getaway, she'll comfortably house a couple in one a of a few different interior accommodation arrangements. Egress has a raised pilothouse for easy viewing and better vantage of the road ahead.
She's built conventionally, with plywood over frames in the hull, but has foam cored, covered with plywood cabin sides and roof to keep her weight down.
Note:....an outboard powered Pilgrim coastal trawler type
....and a larger one
