    Don't laugh. I'm serious about this.
    Can someone tell me where I may find plans for a 2 person pedal boat? I'm looking for the type that uses 2 pontoons with a paddle-wheel between them. Two people sit side-by-side, and pedal. I'm looking for something that can be built in plywood, about 8-10 feet long (length not critical).
    I'm building this for the grand-kids, and also to keep grandpa out of grandmas hair for a while....

    Thank you for your time.

    How'd your search turn out Ed?
    Any viable leads on a paddle boat.
    I've always liked the swan ones myself.
    You could do a propeller easier, cheaper and better than a paddle wheel in my opinion.
