I like this one for a small portable creek explorer craft. Though I would mod it some. Mods would include: 3/8 ply construction, Add one foot length, A more aggressive bow angle, A smidgen of rocker over the length of the boat, and lastly I would build it as one piece.
You could rig a tarp over it and camp in boat on water with no problems. It’s shallow draft and can glide on spit. I would thicken the hull to 3/8 because of my area. We have a ton of rocks in the stream beds, Left from the last ice age.
