The story about the electric motor installation in the 40" boat was a great read. I loved the idea but I really fell in love with the boat itself. What type of craft is that exactly and does anyone make plans for anything similar to it?

As you can tell I know next to nothing about boats, but I love them and I WILL be building a small stitch and glue shortly to get my feet wet. Well hopefully they stay dry. :(

The boat in the article is old and I doubt her plans are anywhere unless someone took the trouble to take the lines off her directly. She'd be a real work of art to build. But simpler solutions abound. There are a couple of Phil Bolger designs that are long, narrow and suitable for silent running.
