    Greetings

    A couple of years ago I saw some little one man river boats in Southern Thailand.

    They had a 5.5hp long shaft motor and were made of 4mm ply on a wood frame.

    Each was flat bottomed with a step about quarter the length down to make it plane.

    The length was about 2.5m and width maybe 1m. Unfortunately I never got any photos.

    Has any one every seen anything like this?
