Jim - I built a round bottom pram a few years back. Looked sort of like half of a big barrel.

Yeah, I just like the word.
It's kinda cool.

The French word is why the boat designer (Jacques Martens) calls his site bateau.com; not pretentious at all. To him it just means boat... :-)

350 would be on flat water without the self bail option. I have mine to the stage where I built the lower hull and put drains in (not like show in the plans; I adapted with the designer's help and have through the bottom drains. My drains are just over 5" from the hull and I tested it in a friends pond. With me (currently about 200 and falling) in it the water level was far enough below the top of the drain tubes to be a dry ride. I put 3 gallon jugs of water in the stern and 2 in the bow and it was almost to the top of the drains. So built as a self bailer with a 5" sole, I think it will be a wet ride over 250. It won't sink, it will just be wet. I am building up the cockpit sole with foam and sculpting the seat.

"A bateau is a shallow-draft, flat-bottomed boat, traditionally pointed at both ends..."

Pretty much describes the Blue Beast.

"...used extensively across North America, especially in the colonial period and in the fur trade. The name derives from the French word, bateau, which is simply the word for boat."

looks like a fun project andy.me and son # 3 were always gonna build a little pram from marine plywood the plans were in field and stream.he's more into cars now.guys around here build cedar canoes they are works of art.the kayak craze has really caught on around here.

LOOKED AT THE PLANS AND I LIKE THAT THING ANDY !!!!!! 350 LB.S WOULD JUST ABOUT DO ME WITH SOME GEAR ....

Comment by jim cosgrove on February 2, 2015 at 5:45pm

always thought those were those wood flat bottomed boats where the bow sweeps up david.big and small the cajuns and swampers use.the commercial guys on lake okeechobee  use em.i think they are hand built.

The kayak I am building is from bateau.com
