I am a 1st time potential builder seriously considering building a small boat in the 14-16ft range that is capable of accepting a 10-25hp outboard motor. I want a no frills, easy to build, fairly rugged but asthestically pleasing boat to be used mainly for fishing. Thus far I have looked at the following designs:
1. Sand Dollar by Arch Davis
2. Little Moby in "Forty Wooden Boats"
3. San Juan in "Forty Wooden Boats"
My only stipulation is that I don't want to build a stitch and glue plan. I feel comfortable with my basic carpentry skills. Can anyone give me some advice on the above plans or some similiar plans that my searches have missed that might fit my above criteria? Thanks--Kurt
