    Hello,

    A few months ago I stumbled upon a site displaying a boat that a man built. It was small and painted red. I have attached a drawing I quickly made of the shape as seen from above. The boat has a very distinctive look. In the picture I saw, there were two small kids in it. That is about all it can hold. There is a motor on the back. Pretty sure the hull is made of wood.

    I know this is kind of a shot in the dark, but does anyone have the name of this design, a site featuring it or best of all plans for it?

    Thanks,
    b

    Mushroom

    That's the "Mushroom with a loft".

    A wooden engine? Come on, you're joking with this, right???

    www.glen-l.com has a wide variety of boat plans dating from the 50s to today. They have just about anything you could think of as far as I have seen and from testimonials seem quite helpful.

    Ah yes! The Tiny Titan! Thanks a lot guys! That is quite impressive being able to find the boat I was talking about with such a crummy description!

    By the way, anyone have an estimate on the cost to build this thing? How would you rate the difficulty of build? Anyone got plans?
