Holding the SweetPea with one hand is long time boat designer and inventor, Platt Monfort.

Please view our complete list of designs for extraordinary lightweight skin on frame canoes, dinghys, kayaks, row boats and more. Many boats can utilize inexpensive Jiffy-Sails and some can take a sliding seat rowing rig. All boats are exceptionally light for their size, yet surprisingly ridgid and very fast in the water. But you don't have to take our word for it, take a moment to browse some of our customer comments.

At present we have a final few prototype boats for sale. See our specials page for details.

Thank you for your interest in lightweight build-at-home boats.
