Here, I am going to document the build of a plywood pram in a fair amount of detail in the hopes that it will make somebody elses life easier if they take on the same project.
This is a miniature version of the same punt, adjusted to be made of one and a half sheets of plywood. Or two boats out of three sheets. As it happens, the boat scales down very nicely. The overall shape is conserved beautifully.
Build a fast 14ft one-man rower that comes out of two sheets of ply. Designed for flat water, you will notice that in order to reduce the fuss at the waterline to a minimum, I have worked the waterline at the design displacement so that it just kisses the chine.
Mouse started life as a one-sheeter, that is, an exercise to develop the smallest, cheapest possible boat. Download the free plans to build this small boat.
A sailboard rig is going to be a winner on looks and also efficiency, but everything else about this boat has got to look cool and be efficient too – in order to match that sail in the kids minds, even the daggerboard and rudder have got to have a little something about them. It also has to be a sit-on boat rather than a sit-in one. The basic dimensions close I have chosen are close to those of a couple of plastic mass-produced designs aimed at the young and intended for the same sort of purpose as here.
One day I decided I need a sculling training boat that is not of fishing boat style, but rather of Olympic style. With a sliding seat, and probably outriggers too.
The Ozarks has many things that are all its own, One of the most interesting products of the Ozarks is the johnboat, a combination of the ingenuity of the people and the natural features of the region.
This canoe uses only 2 sheets of plywood! The file includes a step by step tutorial on reading boat blueprints and cutting plywood from dimensions.
The designs included are appropriate for inshore and coastal fisheries and emphasis has been placed on relative ease of construction and minimum wastage of timber. Download the free plan at the link.
