    hi all,
    new to this forum, in fact new to forums generally.
    anyway i would like to build a wooden/ epoxy glass boat.
    ease of construction.
    i want something that is trailerable, , seaworthy-for coastline exploring. a shallow draft (flat bottom?), sort of camp cruiser, i really dont mind if the accommodations are very rudimentary and camp like.
    i have looked at some of the selway fisher designs, has both a dory and a sharpie design.
    any ideas.

    For modern designs you might consider the well proven Core Sound series at B&B designs - several have had small cabins added to the stock plans if you needed some under-cover space for your particular use.
    See one example - their 20' boat - that has done wonders at the EC.
