Here is an ideal first boat for a youngster. It is a challenging project to involve a young high achiever. Imagine yourself at ten years old; with your own boat that you can row all over the lake. Now trail it home on a jury rig set of wheels behind your bike.

Because of its size, almost a cradle boat, it is very tender for an adult to get in and out. On the other hand, once you sit on the bottom it feels fairly seaworthy in protected harbor conditions with a 180 lb person on board.
