At the end of the "how to build" chapter of the flat-bottomed skiff on page 35 of the book you reference above,it say's "Plans for the Yankee Tender(plan #400-011)are available from the WB Store...". Odd, because the text itself does not mention the Yankee Tender. Also say's it was a two part article in WB #50 and 51.

Suggest a call to WB to confirm that the Flat-Bottomed Skiff is in fact the Yankee Tender. I am curious myself. Nice looking craft. Traditional construction using copper clout and clench nails with muslin laid in bedding compound between two layers of bottom planking.

Hope this was of some help.
