    I built the regular hybrid this summer and used it out on the Laguna Madre (Texas inter coastal waterway) last month. At 5'9", I found it a little short for how I wanted to hunt and I am seriously considering selling it this spring to build the 10' model. As for the squaring the nose, With the foam packed into the front for flotation, I'd recommend just building the 10' model and packing the front end with the foam as the usable part will already be squared due to the foam. I figure that I will either special order 10' plywood or I will patch it in on the back end with some frame work.

    This is the strongest way to join sheets.



    A pal and I used the Pygmy kayak build methods to turn out a couple of longer boats and they have held up well after running over submerged trees, rocks, sand bars, etc.

    Has anybody tried to lengthen a boat after you've built one? I'm thinking of selling mine and building a 10' to replace it as I'm trying to use it primarily as a layout and need a little more room to get low enough.

    Hey guys, use to frequent the site 6-7 yrs ago on a daily basis then haven’t visited in several years. In fact this was unfortunately the 5th year in a row I didn’t get to duck hunt a single day. I am already planning g and gearing up for next year including building a hybrid boat, which I’ve wanted to do for several years. I keep going to the site and can’t seem to figure out how to order plans. I really want to build the NL but don’t see where to get them. It does show the free online plan on the site for the original hybrid, so I may jump in and try making it first to get my feet wet. I am not a wood worker at all so that is pretty intimidating to me although I can fiberglass easily and am pretty experienced in it. I will build the original and give it to my 9yr old son then hopefully can figure a way to get a set of plans for the NL. Open to any advice, tips, or tricks anyone has. Thanks

    Click on the model boat in the menu on left then there will be an add to cart button on the page it brings you to.

    I try doing that and it doesn’t do anything like that, it may be because I’m using a mobile device? I click on the left tool bar and it just brings up the normal page again but nothing about models or how to get plans
