2nd Boat Fee

The plans are a license to build one boat. If you wish to build additional boats, we request $25 for per additional boat.(If you want a second set of plans you will have to order them at full price.)

$25.00
Cast Away * Full size plans

Cast Away is the FISHING VERSON of the Mess About 15. The Cast Away model has an opening behind the cockpit sized for a 13" square milk crate that is very popular with the fisherman.

$75.00
Curlew * Full size plans

Curlew is what I like to call a fast cruiser. However, top speed was never a consideration in this design, instead it was optimized for the 3 to 4.5 mph range.

$75.00
Firefly * Full size plans

Firefly is what I like to call a "Modern Baidarka". It is not true to the 'traditional' Baidarka design but is very much inspired by them.

$75.00
Long Shot * Full size plans

Long Shot has a multi chined (round) hull shape. By going with a rounder shape the boat has less wetted surface area which lowers the resistance.

$75.00
Mess About 12 * Full size plans

Mess Abouts, as the name implies are boats intended for getting out on the water and messing around in. They have large open cockpits with lots of room making entry and exit easy. It's an easy paddling boat with good stability that anyone should be comfortable in.

SHAD * Full size plans

Shad can trace its lineage to Greenland hunting boats. This one was very much inspired by the hunting boats of Greenland.

$75.00
Short Shot * Full size plans

Short Shot as the name implies is just a shorter version of the Long Shot. It has a multi chined (round) hull shape.

$75.00
Sling Shot * Full size plans

Sling Shot is a performance boat with a single hard chine instead of the multiple chines like Firefly and Long Shot. In order to increase the performance potential the hull is longer and has a narrower water line. It also has a more pronounced V shape. The trade off is it's lower stability.

 
$75.00
Tadpole (kids kayak) * Full size plans

Tadepole is you our kid sized kayak

$45.00
VARDO * Full size plans

Vardo The design goals were for a boat a new paddler would be comfortable in and not outgrow. Large enough for weekend camping and a larger cockpit with lots of knee room.
