This free woodworking plans list features an extensive list of free building projects to construct boats and watercraft of all sizes and purposes. Not all of the listings provide exact details on building methods. Builders should have some knowledge of basic wood handling and its characteristics related to marine purposes. Specific questions related to building these projects should be addressed to the web site you visited. Look for the page navigation link near the bottom of this list as there are many more pages for free boat building projects.
Flying Mouse is an exercise to develop just about the smallest, cheapest possible sailing boat I can conceive. As a result, its not a boat to which you can safely trust your life in any sort of waves - as anyone who climbs into a Flying Mouse will quickly figure out.
Summer Breeze was designed to be the most boat from the least materials. It is a robust all purpose skiff targeted primarily at pleasurable rowing and sailing in protected waters, but also suitable for a small motor. It is light enough to car top, narrow enough for most truck beds and yet has capacity for two adults and a child.
The humblest boat in the collection is definitely boat number 11 on plate 48, the Ekstock. This boat is also the only one with a flat bottom, flat sides and flat transoms. Ekstock is Swedish for punt, literally oak log. So the boat is a traditional Scandinavian punt.
As simple as it can get. This is another easy start for boat building. A very simple 7 foot 4 inches x 3 foot 10 inch dinghy, made out of simple materials, using a simple construction method and just the basic tools. And perhaps even simpler than the original one sheet Simbo.
