    I have build a strip ceder canoe and a great island rowboat (see my pictures) but this rowboat is not deep enough for me anymore with bad knees and bad back (getting old sucks) so looking to build something with a deeper sitting and wider to be more stable when moving or standing about casting the fly. She is 12' 10" LOA and beam 4' 4" and I built also the sailing rig and all. I am proud of the one I built as I get compliments all the time on her when I have it out, so want to build another. The Nexus Co in Everett, WA sells plans and even have one 16ft craft they call the Fly-fisher custom made for someone, but hope to see if they sell plans for it too. So has anyone built or used one of their craft (Nexus)?

    That's a beautiful boat you built there, you should be proud of it. I've seen the Nexus website but am not aware that they offer kits or plans. Greg
