Build a Simple Wooden Boat Plans
These plans are called the "Anyone's Boat", because as they claim, anyone can build it.
You can power it with oars or outboard. Neither time nor cost
should stop you. About $12 and 16 hours will complete the job.
For it's true that anyone can build this boat.
If you are just plain anyone, beg a few
dollars (about 12), borrow some tools (a
hammer, chisel, plane, saw and a heavy
drift), buy your materials and steal some
time (around 16 hours
if you don't waste any
of it). You'll wind up
with a strong boat that
will perform well with
any outboard from 1.5
to 22 horsepower and
will even respond to
The lack of a framework
is the secret of
the simple construction. The sides fair
naturally around the single mold stick inserted
between the stem and the stern. You
can bang the job together with about four
pounds of eight-penny nails—use galvanized.
