You can make three different model boats: a dory, a row boat, and a peapod from this single download.
You'll download a total of 12 pages (including instructions) and print on 8-1/2" x 11" (or A4) paper. Better yet, use card stock—which is a tad heavier—for the pages with the boats. Granted, you can print out and glue to cardboard to make the pieces stiffer, and then cut-out.
These are simple but interesting boats, real shapes—not "cartoons" of boats. They require few household tools: scissors, razor knife, awl (or other sharp pointed tool for scoring), masking tape, glue gun or stapler, Popsicle stick (for smoothing/burnishing).
You may be familiar with Sam's work. He has written and illustrated several books, as well as having been a contributor to WoodenBoat magazine for many years. For more, click SAMUEL F. MANNING.
Yes, you can build a fleet and paint them all differently.
