    I will carry this project over from http://www.boatdesign.net/forums/boat-design/teotwawki-boat-42752.html since this a new project and a different boat.

    This project will be 15' 9" skiff(The boat will be 4.8 meters long by 1.52 meters at the widest cross-section. The bottom of the hull at the chine will be 1.3 meters wide at the transom, starting to narrow at 1.82 meters forward of the transom's top edge). Plywood stitch and glue with an internal keel for rigidity will be glassed over. For some reason this method of construction is considered to be fiberglass by legal authorities even though I think of it more as a wooden boat.. The 5th image is possible seating arrangement(Sorry it came out so fuzzy).

    Notice the jig is on wheels so it can be rolled into the garage in case of inclement weather or nightfall.
