Cabin headroom is 6 feet and 2 inches and two cots can be stationed to the rear of the cabin area.

HaPenny A small V-bottom express cruiser that will really get up and go.  Full bill of materials list provided and more.

Sea Angler The Sea Angler is a 20 foot cruiser of the deep V hull type that has gained so much popularity in recent years because of its ability to provide a high turn of speed with minimum pounding in rough seas.  At that time use of longitudinal steps, or lift rails, was not understood and the engines lacked the power needed for this type of hull.

Dolphin Boat Plans

Sea Babe Cruising comfort plus runabout speed are packing into 15 feet Sea Babe. For extended cruising along river and lake routes, winding through the many picturesque canal routes, or for short weekend hops that require frequent launching and beaching, you'll find Sea Babe easy to handle and economical to run.

Sea Craft 25ft cruiser ideal for large lakes or rivers, and fully seaworthy for offshore ocean cruising.  It is a smart cabin cruiser designed with an eye towards simple, low cost construction for the inexperienced boat builder.
