The Crawdad is a great smaller Jon Boat ideal for one or two people. It rows very well, carries a good load, and would make a great fishing boat. It's light enough to car top, too. The Crawdad is very simply built using common lumberyard materials available anywhere. It's the perfect first boat project. Literally anyone can build one.
