    I'd suggest something like this
    One can modify it by IE installing a centerbord trunk to make it a sailing boat. (It's been done)
    It's a clinker, but since the sides are straight there is no landings to worry about, with the transom there is only the rabbet in the stem to deal with.

    Oh my...

    here's a boat I designed and built, but I'd worked at a dory shop for 6+- years at this point.
