When it comes to building a small wooden boat it's hard to beat a skin-on-frame (SOF) for economy of time and materials during construction and ease of use when the boat's finished. Dave Gentry's Annabelle Skiff is a 10' SOF for sailing and rowing. Weighing just 63 lbs, it's well suited for cartopping, and about as easy to carry and launch as a kayak. The skiff is rated for 400 pounds, and has room for carrying a passenger. Skin is 8oz polyester.
Plans include a sheet of full-sized mold patterns, drawings, plus 32 pages of how-to instructions.
I found that the study plans were just enough to wet my appetite to proceed with the build. I am just waiting for the paper version to become available in July. It will be a great project for the long Canadian winter!
Looking for a small row/sail/(maybe motor) boat for river/small lake use. Annabelle may be the prettiest and lightest of the ones I've found.
