Links below include the best of what I have discovered in exploring the world of small boats.
Plans and Kits
- Chesapeake Light Craft – http://clcboats.com. CLC is a great company and does more to promote small boats and getting you out on the water than any other I have come across. Their designs cover all interests and they provide personal service including fielding construction questions.
- Chesapeake Marine Design – http://www.cmdboats.com. Lot’s of nice plywood designs here including sharpie sailing skiffs like the Catbird 16 as well as nice stitch and glue power designs like the Redwing 18.
Small Boat Cruising and Designs
- Dave & Mindy Bolduc’s Microcruising Site – http://microcruising.com. This site has been and is a continuing source of inspiration for my winter dreams. This site is a great place to find out how going small is possible for anyone with the will and even a small boating budget.
