Product Description

Around the turn of the century, flat-bottomed, shallow draft work boats, called "Flatties", were used along the coast of Virginia and North Carolina to carry produce down shoal creeks to market, and for hauling oysters from shallow flats and bars. The Flattie's simple lines allowed it to be easily and cheaply built from commonly available lumber. Evolving into pleasure boats, Flattie's ply the waters of Chesapeake Bay to this day.

A Complete Kit Features Midwest's Micro-Cut Quality Basswood, Mahogany and Birch wood parts.

Complete fittings set - Sails, Blocks, Fittings and Rigging. Includes Display Stand

Specifications:
Overall Length: 10-3/4"
Beam: 3-1/2"
Scale: 3/8" = 1'

This kit can be built without prior building experience, using simple hand tools. Some parts require cutting and fitting.

Midwest's line of Success Series boat kits are designed and engineered for your satisfaction and success. All of Midwest's Apprentice Series model kits contain Micro-Cut Quality Woods and their exclusive Success Series Construction Manual, an extensive all English, illustrated, step-by-step manual that makes building a pleasure.

Build a little piece of American history . . . with Midwest's Apprentice Series Kits. Midwest's Apprentice Boats are modeled after the original boats used in the 1800s and early 1900s. When you build these boats, you will learn real boat building techniques with different types of hull construction such as lapstrake and strip planking. The hull of each boat is built on a frame, just like the real thing.

Made in the USA.
