an 8' mini-runabout
The PEE WEE is small in size, small in cost, but BIG in fun. While not intended for hulking 200 pounders, it's great for the younger set or featherweight adults. A tiny outboard motor will really make it scoot, and yet it's safe when used within its capabilities.
The PEE WEE is inexpensive to build. Only two sheets of 4' x 8' plywood are required for the planking, while the decking and interior will consume most of another. A few "sticks" of lumber and a handful of fastenings are just about all that's required to complete the project. Dad will be the "hero" of the kids when he builds them a PEE WEE. In fact, they can build their own with a little supervision.
