The title of this forum says it includes "other small boats if using wood, composite or other techniques applicable to canoes."

So, here is my thread on the WoodenBoat forum about building a 15 foot sailing skiff designed by naval architect Karl Stambaugh: http://forum.woodenboat.com/showthr...ugh-Sailing-Skiff-Build-in-Virginia-Mountains

The boat is a 15 foot flat bottomed skiff for sailing and (sometimes) rowing. It is a Chesapeake Bay crabbing skiff modified for contemporary recreational use. I'm using lots of techniques transferable to canoe building, including: lofting, scarfing, and working with epoxy. I will put duplicate posts on this site from time to time, but since there are already 10 pages and two years' work on the WB forum, I won't go back to the beginning.

Hope you guys enjoy it!

Too cool, Mr U.
I also built a sailboat, I dragged my feet for nearly 4 years, I think it took about 400 hours. Mostly because I spent too much time concerned about stuff that ended up as no concern at all...
