Rundbottnad eka

This type of boat has probably been one of the most used both along the coasts and in the lakes. Easy to build and easy to handle with oars, sails and outboarders. In addition, can handle heavy load, often used as a trailer after the ships in the past.

As the name says, it is round in the bottom, no sharp keel, only a small steering keel in the stern. Equipped with a mirror in both the stem and the stern. Most often built of pine with ribs of oak.

Age and origin are unknown.


The measuring is done from existing boats that are traditionally built. Some are still in use, some are stored in different museums and some are left as wrecks in different places. Some of these wrecks have more or less fallen to pieces, but are reconstructed at the plan. Several boats are gone and does not exist any more.

For most of the plans a complementary sheet with information about material and dimensions are enclosed. On the plan the boat is drawn in external profile and cross-section profile at CL. In plan, each half with interior and the other half without. All ribs are drawn.

The plans are printed on coated standard paper 90g, mostly in size A1, but can be bigger (e.g. vrakeka 28 feet) or smaller. The plans are sent rolled in a paper cylinder.
