Plans to build the 7' MiniMiss Ultralight Boat
I had a customer write to me and ask for a scaled down version of the Mission Bay skiff he could build. He wanted not to have to scarf or butt block together the sides, but rather build them out of a single sheet of ply, 8' long. I spent some time working out this little skiff as an answer to his needs. He was delighted with the design and built himself a handy little skiff from the plans. Lots of the design work was done right after I watched the new Austin Powers movie, and so the perfect name just struck me - Mini Miss. This skiff is built by stitch-and-glue construction, so it ends up light and strong. All it takes is two sheets of 1/4 mahogany ply, a few scraps of 3/8 ply, and a couple of moldings to build, available at any warehouse home center. It rows just fine but if you want, you could mount an electric or tiny gas trolling motor, and putt-putt along in style.

About Ultralight Stitch and Glue Boats
The Stitch and Glue boat construction technique, evolving over past thirty years or so, was simultaneously developed by a number of innovative boat designers. The technique resulted in simple, easily built boats with beautifully sweeping lines and light, tough construction. These plans include all dimensions for all parts of the boat and easy to follow instructions for assembling the parts. These boats go together without any jigs or fixtures, so anyone can build one in your garage or back yard. Many are little more than a dozen to twenty hours of work.
