Grapeview Point Boat Works builds high quality small wooden craft that respect the values of traditional boat design, while incorporating modern materials and construction methods. The resulting boats combine elegance and beauty with ease of maintenance, strength, and light weight.
We are now building a modified Lake George Boat, based on the design of a boat in the Mystic Seaport Museum collection. Grapeview Point Boat Works’ boat designs are created by marine architects working in traditional styles that hark back as far as the mid-1800s. We welcome plans from other eras and architects, and would be happy to discuss them with you. If rowing is your interest, how about a Peapod, Humble Bee, Lake George Boat, Rangeley Lake Boat, or a St. At under 8 feet, the Humble Bee is agile and manuevrable, making it a great option as a tender to a larger boat, or as a fun boat to explore your favorite lake or estuary. The petit Acorn will look great hanging comfortably from davits on the stern of your sailboat or powerboat.

The plans detail the SKIFF design (shown), the most complicated, but also apply to the a few others; Pram, Kayak, Jon Boat and Canoe as well. Just a few simple steps from vehicle to water, then the easy part begins, safely cruising around your favorite water spot. The result is a 30 pound craft that is easy to transport and easy to paddle, and literally sits on top of the water.
It folds in half, to a 4 foot length, a 28 inch width and a 2 inch thickness, so that it will fit in any vehicle for transport.
It can be constructed in one of two sizes, one only 9" high, strictly as a kayak, the other 12" for motoring, both with buoyancy compartments for safety.
Built lightweight, it can be transported by all trucks, vans, suv's and some hatch backs, and even a bicycle !  Stand up steady, it will make a great weekender for the sole hunter and fisherman, or woman. A boat with a capacity of 750 pounds on the water, converts to a 7 foot camper with accommodations for 2 adults.
This 3 module nesting version holds true to the hull design criteria, while providing a shorter length for transport and storage. It's forerunner wedge hull design is widest at the stern, where the heaviest load is placed. The unique aspect of the design is the foldable mast and boom, which all fits in the hull for transport. The two modules fold on top of each other for a transport size of 4' long, 3' wide and 2' high. With a mainsail and a jib, the boat is capable of some fun sailing, and it can accommodate 2 occupants. Based on the original Toter hull series, the inside aft of the hull was lowered to almost water level to allow the dog easy exit and entry of the boat. The builder has the option to construct any of 5 defined hull sizes, or anything else of their choosing. You can think of these Marinekart Portable Lightweight Boats as Go-Karts since they weigh roughly only 120 pounds.
It is developed using high resistance materials and manufactured using sandwich layers vacuum technology which is traditionally used for sailboat hulls for great strength and rigidity as well as ultra light weight.
Whether designed for rowing, sailing or paddling, the greatest pleasure comes from a boat that is lovely to look at and a joy to use.

Made with durable G-1000, the hooded coat is windproof and water repellent, perfect for everyday use.
Easy to build and assemble at the water, it fits in all trucks and suv's, no trailer required. This is the third generation of the "wedge" hull shape design, and it incorporates the previous builders suggestions for greater freeboard, dry storage and a sail rig option. The single occupant hull is 8' long, with an additional center module it will seat two, and is 11' feet long.
Ideally suited to the novice sailor, it features many options, from foot steering and boom-less sail, to a unique method of keeping the hull erect in heavy winds. Approved by Shorty Routh, the PDR originator, the modular version has good interior room and can accept all PDR options, and it is class legal to race. Capable of accommodating 2 adults, it makes a great hunting or fishing boat, to get into those hard to reach areas. All the attributes of the Toter 2 are enhanced with the sail rig, making the boat a true multi-tasker.

It also features two chest pockets, two side pockets, two top-loaded pockets at the hem, and two pockets on the inside to keep all your gadgets safe. Costing about $100 to construct, and capable of a 6 foot 190 pound occupant, it can be many things to many people. With a 500 pound capacity and ample storage, it also makes a great fishing boat or tender, easily handled by a single person. Rugged yet lightweight, the Easy One makes a great utility boat, and with an added center module, can seat two in comfort.
The hull design is unique for a boat this size, and utilizes my "skin on foam" construction process. But, the biggest new feature is the redesigned aft end that can now accept an optional trolling motor. It is also easy to paddle, and will accept a trolling motor for hours of leisurely cruising at 3 mph.
It gets it name from what it is: Simple-Inexpensive-Multipurpose-Portable-Lightweight-Easy to build. It also has built-in buoyancy, but still nests to store in less than 5 square feet of floor space.
With built-in safety buoyancy and a short, wide sail, the boat is safe for almost anyone to operate. Then there's cool features like comfy eva cushion seating for up to four people, a removable waterproof bag, and a "unsinkable" sandwich build. Like the Rangeley, it can be rowed single or double, and there are seats for passengers in both the bow and stern. The built-in buoyancy and ample storage space, coupled with the optional sailing rig completes the design as a true multi-purpose boat. The boat, named after my Grandsons, is handsome, like them, and is easy to build from 2 sheets of plywood.
With a cost of around $100 to build, plus accessories, it is a good boat for those just getting into the boat building hobby. Empty weight is about 130 pounds, plus gear, and it is easily fabricated with common shop tools.
The sail is home made of white polytarp material, and should provide many seasons of enjoyment at very little cost.
The 3 modules easily bolt together for fast assembly at the water, and the refined structure will provide years of service. Also available is a sail rig set of plans designed specifically for the Pollywog, see below.
