The simple plywood boat, Simbo.

This is an easy start for boatbuilding. A very simple 7’4″ x 2’8″ boat, made out of simple materials, using a simple construction method and just the basic tools.

The design displacement is 230 lbs, that is, one person. The boat displaces about 900 lbs just before swamping, so there is room for more cargo at the cost of speed. But speed can’t be the reason for building a boat like this.
