    Where could I find plans to build a super panga, 26-28'loa, 8-8.5' beam. Would think these would be ideal hulls for DIY considering they are being built in some 3rd world areas. Thinking stitch and glue or aluminum, can't seem to find plans anywhere.

    The picture of the boat they called panga at http://www.boatsalesmall.com/ it does not looks like the pangas I know, it looks more like a "stretched" skiff, Pangas.com is a good site they do build something that really reflects the style of the panga.

    Most of the pangas have no plans, builders have offsets and moulds form previous pangas and that's usually all they have, this are mostly built based on experience.

    I don't recall if i have the offsets but I will have a look.

    Do you think the boats at that fao link reccomended by Guillermo are the ones from which all these; fiberglass, planing (w/flate keel strake), 50-115 hp, recreational "Pangas" were derived ?

    i think you will find what is commonly called a panga is a japanese design by yamaha which was based on jap beach launched, surf fishing boats
    built on a full length delta pad instead of a keel like a western boat
    gunwale bulge for flotation
    there is a panga group with some pictures that might help

    We will have complete plans for a 28' "panga" very soon, they are 90% complete.

    I hate to use the word "panga" because it has come to mean so many things, but the boat will have 8'6" beam, fine entry, relatively low deadrise ange at transom, very efficient, easy/cheap to build. It will complement the 20', 22', and 25' we already have.

    joel..you are right.. as i understand it, panga is spanish for small boat and everything is called a panga where the spanish had influence

    the plans i have seen on the net have been a v skiff type with a decent bow
    they are a fine craft but nothing like a jap fishing surfboat that is the asian design with L:b of 4-5:1
    the 5 board delta pad boat would be a very simple boat to build for stitch and glue

    It is called Yamaha design in Malaysia.
    I believe this is another variation of the Yamaha design.Locally it is called Pancung - meaning chop off as beheaded. Samurai ?
