What is the Puddle Duck Racer?
According to the designer, Shorty Routh: “The PDRacer is a one design racing sailboat that is basically a plywood box with a curved bottom, and is the easiest boat in the world to build . . . A simple hull can be made from 3 sheets of plywood, titebond II glue, and latex house paint. If you work hard for 2 weekends, you can go sailing on the 3rd weekend. . . . We use the same shaped hulls and go play with them together in fun and goofy ways, and sometimes for very serious racing. . . . Our boat is not just for racing, she is great for all sorts of other purposes – and in most states a boat this small does not need to be titled or registered.” See PDRacer.com for much more information.
