This is a boat I built for myself. I wanted a canoe to fish from. I have fished from my kayaks but a canoe makes a a better fishing platform than a sit-in kayak for me. I did not intend to offer plans for this but there was a lot of interest in it.
StoneFly will track harder than most canoes. It is not flat bottomed and it was designed for use on a very large lake where I may paddle some distance. So it's not going to spin around quickly. That is a draw back on smaller creeks but I still use on them, it just takes more effort to turn it around.
Details on the specific boat designs are found a http://www.kudzucraft.com/designs/index.php
Full sized plans make the boat building experience much less stressful and much easier. With my plans there is no lofting required (laying out and drawing the frames). You simply cut out the individual pieces from the plans, glue them on the plywood, and cut to the lines.
My boats are designed using the latest in marine software. The plans are drawn using CAD software, and then plotted on a large format plotter to ensure accuracy.
Included is our detailed assembly manual with over 100 pages and approximately 100 images and illustrations which walk you through your build. If you get stumped you can get help from other builders in my forum. And of course I am active there too.
The plans are license to build one boat. If you wish to build more than one please see 2nd boat fee item for more details
