Hannu's Boatyard Free plans of micro-boats, distributed by a hobbyist boat designer in Finland. Lots of these can be constructed from a single 4'x8' sheet of plywood, shockingly enough, though naturally you wouldn't be taking these boats on anything but the most protected of waters. boats, personal, diy Added by reed

The Mother of All Maritime Links The title promises a lot, but it does genuinely deliver. It's referenced all over on the internet when researching DIY wooden boats, and has a plethora of links (some now sadly broken.) Expect to use the WayBack machine a fair bit, and sometimes you'll be disappointed. But, it's well worth browsing if you're interested in boats. boats, diy Added by reed

Jim Michalak's Boat Designs Fascinating DIY boats by Jim Michalak - these are rather unusual and strange looking, but easy to build and fun to use! He has a catalog of 'prototype' boats available for $3, and articles on boat design fairly regularly. diy, boats, blog Added by reed
