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 rowing.

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.
