    I have already presented this design at the WoodenBoat Forum, but as I know that people in general are more critical over here, I am interested in your opinion about the design.

    As I'm an amateur most of my designs are very small boats like canoes or even just water toys like most of my one sheet boats: Boat design http://flo-mo.weebly.com/boat-design.html

    One of my one sheet designs has the hull shape of a planing dinghy which I know does not make much sense. I though what about scaling the design to a more usable size and still keeping in mind maximum utilization of the plywood sheets.
