Boat - Oarmouse

I think this boat could be quite something - a fast 14ft one-man rower that comes out of two sheets of ply. Designed for flat water, you will notice that in order to reduce the fuss at the waterline to a minimum, I have worked the waterline at the design displacement so that it just kisses the chine.

Boat - Mouse

Mouse started life as a one-sheeter, that is, an exercise to develop the smallest, cheapest possible boat. As a result, it is not a boat to which you can safely trust your life in any sort of waves - as anyone who climbs into a Mouse will quickly realize.

Little Breton Lapstrake Pram

The idea for this pram came to me as I sat in the shade beside the dock of a small Breton port in late summer. A small boy not much older than my six-year-old son was playing in a round-bilged little simulated clinker pram; he was an expert at rowing and sculling and he seemed to be having a grand time.

Canoe, Four Power Still Water

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.

Boat - Dory, Bolger Light

There were three or four nice designs in the book, a small sailing boat, an outboard lobster boat and a dory, whose lines caught and pleased my eye. The dory was the Bolger Light Dory, or Gloucester Gull. I made a note of the important measurements of the dory. Not many were needed: the side patterns, three bottom widths and the mid frame measurements. Then I forgot about the thing. Then one day...

Boat - Micro Auray Punt

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.

Boat - Outrigger Canoe

The Bugis ethnic group of Sulawesi are famous for their maritime exploits. These exploits once included enough piracy to inspire our word boogey-man inches or bogey-man inches. Today their huge fleet of wooden Pinisi inches ships carry freight all around the islands of S.E. Asia. Less known are their outrigger canoes. Hereâs one particularly cute example of the Lepa-lepa inches. Syamsuryadi aka Syamsu inches built it in 1999 for fishing.

Boat - Ensigns Gig - Swamp Thing

Swamp Thing looks fairly sleek in some ways, but has low freeboard and holds only one person. We wanted to be able to go rowing together, but we also wanted to be able to pick the boats up and put them in the back of a small truck. That meant we each needed our own boat.

Boat, Sail - Wildcat

A sailboard rig is going to be a winner on looks and also efficiency, but everything else about this boat has got to look cool and be efficient too - in order to match that sail in the kids minds, even the daggerboard and rudder have got to have a little something about them. It also has to be a sit-on boat rather than a sit-in one. The basic dimensions close I have chosen are close to those of a couple of plastic mass-produced designs aimed at the young and intended for the same sort of purpose as here.
