Tadpole build/FROG

Recommended Posts

I love my shortshot I built in 2017.  Needed an excuse to build another boat.  My 11 year old son (68 lbs) paddled my shortshot around a bit and decided he wanted a boat of his own. So how could I say no? Placed the order, received the plans and dove right in. 


Made a a couple changes to the design (sorry Jeff).  I added a laminated beam at the front of the cockpit and used cherry slats for the floor instead of a plywood floor. I was going for a similar look to my shortshot.  It will look just like dad's boat, but made in "kid size".
