Free plans: 2 Sheet Rowboat/Canoe

For those of you who like the tiny one sheet canoe “Little Guide” (http://forum.woodenboat.com/showthre…ne-sheet-canoe) but said it is too small for them – here comes “Big Guide”:

A forumite wrote Little Guide is a water toy and of course he is right.
So I made a similar design by the name of “Big Guide” that could be made of two sheets of 6mm plywood. It is as simple as can be and should make a serious rowboat.
For me it will not be possible to build it within the next six months but I made an accurate 1:10 scale model using 0,8mm birch plywood. I think it should be an easy build and a fast recreational rowboat for protected waters.
