Plans & Kits
If you’re in the market for a boat to build, this directory of Boat Plans & Kits is a fine place to start. And if your company sells plans or kits, we invite you to list your offerings here. There is no charge for listing, but the featured boats must be built of wood. To refine your search of this directory, use quotation marks. If you search Nutshell Pram Kit, you’ll receive all the listings that include the words Nutshell, Pram, and Kit. To refine your search, enter “Nutshell Pram Kit”; you’ll then see only the results for Nutshell Pram kits.

Motorboats - Outboard
Mia was the second design that I published, a 12′ runabout, inspired in part by William Jackson's 1955 design for the “Ace” which was produced by the Sande Boat Works between 1956 and 1962 (www.sandeace.com), and in part by the 1950’s designs of Hal Kelly.Mia
