Peapod by Gardner

Gardner, John


John Gardner modeled this peapod shortly after coming to Mystic Seaport in 1971. She was designed for rowing ease, with a bit more deadrise and hollower ends than are found in many pods.  John gave her a lively sheer for looks.  These plans were drawn from the lofted lines. Since she's a true double-ender like most peapods, the drawing shows a quarter of the boat, with the lines on top of each other as they came off the lofting table. John's account in Building Classic Small Craft describes her design and construc­tion-l/2" cedar planking on continuous frames (5/8" molded by 7/8" wide) spaced at 8"-but some other plans will need to be reviewed for details. She has enough deadrise to allow a keel batten to back up the narrow scantling keel.  From 87 Boat Designs by Ben Fuller.  Plans drawn by Mystic Seaport staff.
