I have built the Nutshell Pram, a Joel White design. It was a successful outing. Not sexy like the hydroplane.

Boat plans are highly refined documents. You can mess with a table design, but unless you’re an expert, you’re wise to stay with the exact specs of a boat plan.

And if you’ve never built a boat before, and do, I suspect you’ll discover this interesting factoid: Everything else I’ve built has started from the wall or the floor. A boat starts at a point in space. Go for it!
