Frank - I know there are plans for cross-planked flat bottom skiffs on the net - Sounds like HBL's boat is like those. Really nice boats. I never looked around for plans because I had my mind made up that I wanted to copy the Mojean skiff my Dad's friend had. It was made locally, was the traditinal fishing skiff for cutthroat in Puget Sound, and I had a connection to it from rowing that same kind of boat as a kid. It was easy to take the lines from the old boat and make a copy. Plus I could look at the details of the construction from the original boat when I wondered how they did something.
