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.
This is a one sheet version of the same punt, adjusted to be made of just one sheet of plywood. As it happens, the boat scales down very nicely. The overall shape is conserved beautifully. Both length and beam are 3/4 of the original, so the L/B ratio is the same, about 2.2.
If you like your sports speedy, try this lightweight 12-1/2 foot outboard hydroplane. Welcome to the home of free boat and model airplane plans. Plans at this site are large and slow loading so be patient.
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 Qivitoq is an Inuit-style Sea Kayak, and was heavily based on native design. The original inspiration came from the Chewonki Kayak. That article and others on Greenland type kayaks were the foundation.
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.
Ever dream of building a boat? In your own backyard? We thought so. Building a boat is one of the truly great fantasies that most grown boys and girls have indulged in at one time or another. For most of us, it never gets beyond the dream.
This is a miniature version of the same punt, adjusted to be made of one and a half sheets of plywood. Or two boats out of three sheets. As it happens, the boat scales down very nicely. The overall shape is conserved beautifully.
The canoe is 13 feet by 31 inches, but no great harm can result from making it a little shorter or stretching it to 15 or 16 feet. Nowadays we would add watertight bulkheads in the ends for flotation.
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.
