This is a small boat from Wooden Boat magazine that I built in 1983. I made from regular BC exterior plywood sheathed with fiberglass. I used red oak for the gunnells, seats and trim.

Very nice job Fred. Did you get the plans for it, or just make it from the picture in the magazine? I love wooden boats, so nice to see someone still make them.

Thanks folks! Bill I got the plans from the magazine “WoodenBoat” many years ago. It was designed as a yacht tender, and is called Martha’s Tender. Try their website, I looked but could not find the plans. Thanks again!

Very cool. I’ve always wanted to build a boat but never have. I would go for something like this.
