    Hello all!

    Long story short...

    I want to build a boat just like the Sanibel 18. I like the shape, size, keel, rigging, trailer friendly etc.... I would be adding more woody accents for a traditional look.

    I am a complete boat building beginner but have built my own house and Im restoring and old car now. I would call myself a very enthusiastic DIYer.

    I would prefer already created boat plans and have looked at some websites for similar models.
    Selway-Fisher
    CLC boats
    Stevproj
    Duckworks
    Straydog boatworks
    Glen L
    Chesapeake Marine design
    Wood boat magazine.
    and others that I cant remember.

    I would prefer a plywood hull design as it seems more realistic for my skills and patience.

    Do any of you have any other websites that I should check out?

    Thank you!!

    Welcome to the forum.
    If you want to make a plywood hull, you should choose one that does not have double curved surfaces, such as the hull in the photograph, or adapt (if possible) the shapes and reinforcements of the chosen boat to that type of construction.

    Here is a link to Evening Swan on the Selway Fisher website -
    Pocket Cruisers 16' to 20' https://www.selway-fisher.com/PC1620.htm#EVE

    Will you be building her with plywood panels or strip planking?
    And have you made a decision about whether to fit an inboard engine (perhaps even a small electric motor, but I know they are controversial) or an outboard motor in a well?

    Please do start a thread showing your construction progress - everybody on here enjoys these.
    Or maybe just carry on with this thread?
