It looks to me like the forward deck is totally flat and gently arched toward the transom, I think that would make my runabout plans much simpler. Right now I'm trying to think of a way to achieve an arched deck on a flat top frame that can be assembled upside down on the bench to provide good alignment.

Just add legs to the frames. Finnish the hull, cut the legs and sand to the top of the frames. They can be glued down to mantain alinment and keep the hull straight.

OK, first attempt at this sort of thing, no laughing!
Does it need some kind of fixed rudder at the rear? I noticed some photos have something like that.

Pete - those fixed rudders at the back are called "skegs" and help keep the barge tracking straight, especially if you're towing the barge on the string. You'll need one on each side near the edge and they should have a slight (maybe 10-15 degree) camber pointed towards the outside of the barge.

Also, you'll want to add two tow points (cleats, bitts, eyebolts, whatever) at the very-most forward corners to tow from. This way you can attach ends of your tow bridle to each corner and help tame the wander while towing...

capntroy,
Thanks much for your help (and education). I added skegs at the rear, not sure if I have the camber correct or reversed, please let me know. Also added cleats and bitt for towing.

Jim,
I am posting new images, let me know if you see them, One is a .png file, the other a .pdf file.

Pete

JayJay,
Did you make a rope bumper for the bow? If so, what did you use?

Pete - the skegs actually need to angle outboard the other way and you can put a bit more angle on them since they're going to be so small, try 30 degrees.

Also, it might help with storing and stacking the barge if you cut the skeg so it's flush with the barge keel.

No rope bumper yet, just what you see in the photos. I'd like to figure out how to make one though.

Thanks capntroy,

I corrected the skegs and made them flush with the keel.
