The "PEVENSEY 10" is 10' - 0" long and 4' - 6" at its widest point. She will only need 5" of water with an average load of 2 adults, a picnic or fishing gear and a small outboard motor. Her dry weight is around 80lb (36kg) depending on how she is built. Her main use is as a fresh water fishing boat for use on lakes, canals and rivers etc. One was recently built as a picnic boat for use on a canal with canopy fitted too. She is built in 6mm ply to keep weight down and has optional buoyancy built-in under each seat. A full length keel strip is fitted to the bottom along with simple timber outer runners to help protect it when beaching. She is easily driven by a small 2hp or 3hp petrol outboard or electric outboard can be fitted for motoring. Although, on paper, it is possible for this boat to be carried on the roof rack of a larger car, I think she is more easily handled, launched and recovered by trailer.
