Dory Forum - Yes!
Especially if you would welcome a plastic builder. I made a 13" modified Briggs deign on Rhino 3D, and cut it out of HDPE plastic sheets using printed patterns, joined with an injection welder. Why plastic? I'm an old kayaker, never really rowed, and I do hit rocks. It has a raft frame to give it some rigidity, but I'd like to modify that.
I made one serious mistake, built it so it would fit in my Toy truck, but that's a whole other story. I do love how she feels in waves, though.
