Phil Thiel's ESCARGOT is a house/canal boat designed for slow, enjoyable journeys in protected waters.
Plans include 16 sheets, which you can print-out on 11" x 17" paper. If you are familiar with Phil's work, these plans ALSO include four pages of his L'ARK design, which was a modification of ESCARGOT. Construction is considered "simple box-like" marine ply construction for the advanced amateur. Purchase of the digital plans give you rights to build one boat. These are digital downloads, in PDF format.

Weight about 750 lbs.
