Plans to build the 16' Oscoda Mini-Tugboat

Oscoda Mini-Tug Wooden Boat Plans

To fulfill the dreams of a retired airline pilot living along the shores of Lake Huron, I designed this sturdy, easy-to-build mini tugboat named after the town he lived, the Oscoda. This fun yet very useful little boat will be perfect for those looking to enjoy themselves on any body of water, moving along at a moderate pace and in any weather.

Like all of my boats, the Oscoda is designed for the first time boatbuilder, working with construction grade materials available from any lumber yard or warehouse type home center. Imagine the looks you'll get from your friends next spring when they see what you were able to build in your garage this winter.

About Mini-Tugboats

Mini Tugs are all the rage these days. Why not- they're cute, fun, economical, and can handle rough water and bad weather. What more could a serious water person want in a boat? These boats are generally outboard powered and have displacement hulls that limit their speed, but make them able to carry big loads. If you're looking for something that will turn heads, is inexpensive to build and doesn't mind being out in cold, rainy weather, maybe a mini tug is the right boat for you.
