    you see iam looking to do a summer project before the next duck hunting season and iam very interested in building a "Layout boat" which i have photos of at the bottom, but the only ones that i see are all made out of fiber glass does anyone know where i can find layout boat designs in wood that lists all the materials and lengths of the materials that would be needed?

    On the water:

    Just for Sh*ts and Giggles I did up a quick something in Carene 2003 (plywood panels only) and imported it into freeship to touch it up a bit. This would end up an excercise in plywood sculpting but it certainly is doable...at least to the general shape and idea.

    That is called a "sneakbox" traditionally. Search under that name and you will find lots of designs. Chapelle has at least one and you can get it for free.
