I?ve never built a boat before, but I have pretty advanced woodworking skills and the tools that I need. For those criteria, I'd plump for the Blue Jay design, with a hand dolly to put in and out of the water, and perhaps a long sculling oar as well as oars. When you bring up the weight question and the build-time question the obvious method that can easily give you both is STITCH & GLUE. This outfit is taking plywood boatbuilding to a point where most home builders can build light, strong and fast. I just got back from a week of cruising the Bay of Islands in the North Channel in my Chesapeake Skiff.
The boat isn't zippy, but it handles all sorts of wind with grace: Perfect sailing manners. You may need to be a bit more specific on the specs -- when you say you and two teenage girls need to carry the boat down to the shore -- how far and over what surface? Either way, it sounds like simplicity and light weight are the main factors, so stitch and glue or glued lapstrake would be your best option.
I really liked my two ply BlueJays, but no way could they be carried by one adult and two girly teens.


I'm not as sophisticated or experienced as many on this forum and have not actually built Bluegill but I own the plans and have done a lot of research for a boat almost identical to the parameters you have named. The plans do not have a separate detailed instruction book as some designers do but they do include a chronological, step-by-step list of how to build in on the plans themselves. I also created a Word matrix of similar boats with my notes that I can try to send you later if you want. Tom Hill's book Ultralight Boatbuilding describes how to build boats like Bluegill for those who have never done so. Don't mean to burst your bubble, but trying to sail on a small inland lake is like trying roller skate uphill.

I suppose there are only a few thousand designs that will fit my criteria, but hopefully you'll help point in the right direction.
Want it primarily for sailing, but rowing has to be an option to get home when the wind dies and for messing about. One, so I have some chance of getting it done in a limited amount of time before next summer.


These plans include all the forms and plywood parts drawn at full size needed to build the boat.
These full size plans include patterns for all the forms needed to build a strip-built rowing boat. The water is not very deep (5 to 9 feet) and close to the shoreline are submerged rocks---including some from old stone walls. I?d rather build from plans than a kit (I think) and I?d prefer to build something that others have built so that I can better ask questions if I have any. It has plenty of storage space and I am told it improves the view of bystanders (bysailors?).
Drawing inspiration from traditional rowing boat designs such as Adirondack guide boats and pram-style dinghies Nick has used his knowledge of the strip planked technique of building to create beautiful, lightweight and strong rowing boat designs.
