The boat plan I used to build my boat was the 14'
Playboy Runabout. I have pics from start to finish of the project and
i'm very proud of it. I customized the plans a little to suit my needs
better. I built her to drive with remote controls not from the motor,
and I closed in the sides and put a storage compartment on both sides. I
put a bench seat accross the back with storage underneath instead of a
seat down both sides and I closed in the rear of the boat for extra
storage (gas tank, battery box, tools, etc). I also fiberglassed the
outside and painted it. I think the plans were great and easy to follow
for the first time builder.
Have some fun in the sun!
