This one is one of my "favorites" in this size range… it reminds me a lot of the production built C-Dory, but is viably built by the "average" home builder. Outboard (usually) powered… its possibly to have quite a nice craft.

The plans are available as a book (from Amazon or straight from the author; his website (or this older version of his website) also gives an errata list for the book).

There is an extensive community surrounding these designs, with mailing lists, etc. to support you in your building efforts.

Following are some links to check out:

  • – an extensive build log and "community" site with a mailing list, etc.
  • The Tongass – a build log with other links concerning the Tolman skiff. That’s where I borrowed the picture above… very nice job!
