POWER - DRIFTER 15
Our POWER-DRIFTER is just like our regular driftboats up forward. But back aft, we've straightened out the bottom and widened the stem so you can power upstream more efficiently in milder rivers where ordinary driftboats under power often can't overcome the current. The result is a more versatile boat, and one you can take out upstream where you put in. Yet you still get all the features of our regular driftboats such as adjustable seating, side trays, watertight bow and stem compartments, good rowing maneuverability, and easy construction especially intended for amateurs.

Plans include material listings and FULL SIZE PATTERNS for the temporary frames, transom, stem, breasthook, rail braces, and knee locks - no lofting required. Once the temporary framework is set up, plywood or plating is simply leaned against the forming members, marked and cut to shape, and applied - it's fast and easy even for beginners.

Options include building in either 15' or 16-1/2' length. Power comes from either a 15" or 20" shaft outboard.
