I have created yet another take-apart small boat called the EXPLORER. It is a One Sheet design, for individual use, to be rowed or paddled, but will accept a trolling motor. This is also a nesting design, that will fit in most any vehicle, and is only 50 inches long for transport. The primary features are: small size, weighs 40 pounds with a 250 pound capacity, $100 to build basic hull, tape & glue construction and no trailer required.
As you can see, this is a small boat with character and will not break the bank to build. Construction is straight forward, and the plans, alhough brief (8 pages) are complete.
Here are some sample pages from the plans: (click to enlarge)
