I like that. Should draft shallow and track well. Makes me think of farm ponds and shell crackers!

Too funny!

The Naval Architect, Phillip C. Bolger, designed "Fast Brick" to be a lifeboat for deep sea sailing vessels.

Three modes of propulsion - sail, row, or motor. Built in foam for buoyancy. Storage bins for supplies. One thousand pounds capacity. Tarp for protection from the sun and elements. Dacron sail.

I'm looking forward to this build.

I have a 4x12 that I build about every 6 years or so from popular mechanics plans. I do not fiberglass it, just paint it. Plus I leave it out in the weather. If I build out of oak instead of the cheap stuff, it would last a lifetime. But it only takes a day and a few sheets of plywood. So,I just rebuild every time it needs repaired. It looks a lot like the picture you posted.

I have a real cheapy set of plans for a knock about boat - 'Skimmer'.
It's 4' x 8', two sheets of AC Exterior plywood, several eight foot 2" x 4"'s, ring shank nails or dry wall screws and Premium PL adhesive.

I remember these being raced on the lake when I was a kid, it would be fun to lengthen it a bit and use a jet ski motor and jet drive to power it!
