The plans I have looked at are the Selway-Fisher motor canoe, Ross Lilliston Fleet, and countless others.
Good luck in your search and I am in Fairbanks if you want to look at some potential boats.
If stability is the only problem and the cheap canoe is big enough, why not just build a stabilizer or two for it? You can get epoxy at West Marine in Anchorage or at Plaschem located in either Wasilla or Houston. If management will not approve a multi hull I think you're on the right track with the motor canoe. Long and narrow to make lifting as easy as possible but these are not ultralights and total weight starts to become a problem for cartopping.

I build the Cheap Canoe this spring and it was a great experience but was to tippy for use with my two children under 6.


I have been able to source BS1088 plywood locally, but still have to find who sells epoxy resin locally or the best place to order it from that ships to Alaska.
The candlefish 13 looks good but concerned about the amount of material required and the method of build.
I have the Scott Bushman model and as stable as it is, I find it pretty narrow for operating the motor. Old boats can be used for a variety of wonderful projects, such as old boat doorway, boat sandbox, old boat outdoor kitchen, boat swing bed and so on. If by any chance it violates your copyright, we will delete it immediately upon presented proof.
This is a 25' boat that was built according to the original plan using western red cedar, mahogany and purple heart.
This winter I would like to build somthing that is cartop able, a tow vehicle is not in the budget, will fit on adult along with two children. I know all boats are compromises, but the project will give me somthing to work on when winter hits with the little ones. It would be used on the local lakes and rivers, and maybe in a pinch on saltwater or larger alaska rivers.


If you can find something in wood that approximates that hull, it would be very stable for your family. Easily car-toppable it would be fine for most of the smaller interior lakes and would be fine on the Chena, as well.
So the biggest danger on the rivers, besides the snags, are the jet boats that are going really fast.
Altho small, I would think it would b well within your skill set and be big enough for an adult and two small kids. The plans are free and while you save and plan for a larger boat for the future, you can be using this one.
