Free Plans from Storer Boat Plans

Why are these plans FREE? Because I want people to know just how good correctly proportioned touring paddles can be. Most of the paddles sold commercially are based heavily on racing models, which are fine if you are in training and only want to go 500 metres at the highest possible speed. For the rest of us there is a better balance available when we might be paddling for several hours or where the boat may be loaded. The oars were drawn to fit the Goat Island Skiff, but will fit other boats of a similar width.

23ft Dayboat Launch on Hawkesbury River; storerboatplans.com

Dayboat/Launch 23 – trailerable cruising outboard motor boat

The Dayboat/Launch is 23ft long and intended as a Dayboat or Camp Aboard boat for a small family. It has space for an enclosed toilet. The design is complete drawings for hull but final decisions are left to the builder. It is not step by step instructions like my smaller boats. It cruises at near 8 knots with a 10hp high thrust Yamaha outboard.

Why do I have an economics graph on my boat building website?

An economics graph on a wooden boat plan website?I am talking about getting out on the water in hard economic times – wooden boats can be very cheap and very, very good.Do a Huck Finn and drift down the Mississippi in a light and simple plywood canoe or sailboat. Adventuring is cheap!
