Recently i bought a 16ft fishing boat for a good price but the cabin looked like a chicken coop so i decided to cut it off and build a new one

A distinct improvement, I’d say.
Not only better built and structurally sounder but far better lines.
Tip of the hat!

Really cool!

What kind of plywood are you using? In the next year or so I’m considering building a teardrop trailer and am interested in the kinds of plywood used that can be bent the way you’ve done on your boat and that have some water resistance.

Nice. Did you paint it or use fiberglass resin over it?

Boats like these can be found for free all the time, sometimes even with a trailer attached. Gives me too many ideas… perhaps one day
