Sweet Pea™ is an outrageously small and lightweight boat designed for small people. It is a great canoe for children to build and use, with adult supervision.

This is by far the simplest boat to build in this fleet of designs. Due to the low cost, it becomes an ideal starting project to learn and master the different skills involved.

Amazingly enough, it has been demonstrated that the boat will carry over 300 pounds in calm water. Now that's a lot for an 8 lb boat!
