Some while back I posted a picture from a reader of an easy to build fast skiff. It is not only fast but looks great too so I was very pleased when I came upon this video of the boat sailing in a good breeze, the music is irritating so you might want to turn the sound off.
You can find more information about this boat by clicking here where there is a link to plan suppliers in the USA and other countries.
Although I have not seen the plans for myself I would bet that the boat is fairly easy to construct, with just a bottom panel, two side panels and the transom. There will of course be some fitting out of the hull, installation of the outwales and so on but from the looks of it the boat should go together very quickly which is important especially for a first time builder as the boat starts to take shape almost in the first weekend. I reckon that the painting and varnishing if done to the highest standards will take longer than the actual building. I have always liked the look of painted outside and varnished interior on this type of craft which I think looks well.
