If you would like to own one of these lovely little boats, but don't have the time or ability to build one yourself, you can order a finished boat. The base price for a rowing version is $6,175.00, with a choice of sailing rigs available as optional extras. You can also order a bare hull to finish yourself. Give me a call at , or send me an e-mail at

  

       I’m Arch Davis – I learned boatbuilding and design in New Zealand in the 1970s. I have been helping people to build beautiful wooden boats since 1988. You can see a few of them by clicking on Picture Gallery . My approach to design is to put into your hands the means to use modern materials – marine plywood and epoxy resin – to build a truly lovely boat with classic lines.

      I believe that a boat should be beautiful, not just by virtue of her lines, but also in her construction. No material makes this possible like wood. My aim is to take advantage of wood’s unique strengths, in a structure that captivates the eye. I want you to feel that you are always doing good work in building one of these boats.

powerboat kit

       You’ll see that I have a small collection of designs. That is because I understand your need for clear, comprehensible, detailed plans and instructions. I put a lot of time into my drawings, building manuals and DVDs. I also spend a lot of time helping people through their projects, on the phone or by e-mail. I really am here to help!

My two week class “Building the Penobscot 13” at the WoodenBoat School in Brooklin, Maine, is one of the highlights of my summer, and has been very well reviewed by students. The school on beautiful Eggemoggin Reach is a great place to spend some time. You get the chance to see a variety of activities, there is a fleet of small wooden boats that are available to students in the evenings and on weekends, and the food is great!

If you would like to take my class, call me at or send an e-mail to

Meet the Scout, a great sailing dinghy -- and rewarding project for a first-time boatbuilder.

The Scout is a wide, stable, 10-foot boat that's a blast to sail and row. Weighs only  ~70 pounds and makes a great tender, yet has enough dry stowage below deck to take on a beach camping trip of its own. The offset daggerboard makes an open footwell so you can even sleep aboard.

The Scout is available as a CNC plywood-and-foam kit exclusively here at Duckworks. You can also grab the epoxy/fiberglass kit , sail & rigging , and any hardware that you need right here as well. Or if you prefer, check out the  COMPLETE SCOUT PACKAGE  with EVERYTHING you need for your build! 

Check out the YouTube video below for a demo of the Scout on the water, and an interview with a home builder who brought this kit boat to life!

Lightning Model Kit

Lightning Model Kit

Description.

  This is one of the most popular kits we have ever offered. It might be because it is pretty simple to build, or that it's a handsome boat. But because so many folks order two, we think it is because they are so much fun to race.

Made with precision pre-cut balsa frames and mahogany planking, the kit includes plans, thorough instructions, nylon sails, line for rigging, and hardware. Plus it has a lead weight which you attach to the bottom of the centerboard if you are going to sail it. 

This Lightning scale replica is a great way to learn about boats, without having to spend the time on precise cutting. You supply the varnish, paint, glue, and a few household tools, everything else is included. Designed for sailing on your favorite "golden pond" or as a handsome addition to your mantelpiece. Couple of building tips: clothespins make great clamps, and styrofoam (not the corn-starch based type) peanuts make great flotation under the foreward and aft decks. This model is not designed for remote control. If you sail on a larger pond and don't have a chase boat, kite string/spool are very handy.

Scale: 1" =1' LOA: 19" Beam: 6 1/2" Height: 26" Note: that stand in the photo isn't included... we made that in just a few minutes from scrap wood. You'll likely make something prettier!

Skill Level = 1

Skill levels are: 1 = beginner 2 = intermediate 3 = advanced

If you'd like a better understanding of just what you are getting yourself in for, click: INSTRUCTIONS.   

You'll supply paint, and simple household tools:

Razor / X-acto knife, ruler, wood glue, super glue, Course, Medium, and Fine grit sandpaper, small paint brush, masking tape, 3/32" drill bit, needle, thread, pliers and cutting pliers, pins, clothespins for clamps.

Customer Reviews

My son and I built this boat(he mostly watched). Very fulfilling, nice kit, he sails it in the pool. Money/time well spent!

I bought this for my brother, and he loves it. He said it is way better than the plastic models he’s done lately, getting more involved with shaping and sanding the pieces. The quality of the materials and intimacy of the directions feels like he’s building with the producer, not a faceless company. I’m betting he gets more kits in the future!

Very nice kit!

I like the kit. It is very complete. The instructions are good, but require a lot if flipping back and fourth between the text and the diagrams. I started off using cyanoacrylate glue, that was a mistake. Now I’m using wood glue and the build is going much better. I am about half way. It is a fun model to build. Mine will be painted to match the Lightning I once had, 13703.

User picture

I have built many wooden boat models over the years but haven’t done so for about 10 years. This is a great starter, just read through the instructions first and take your time.

Acel Power raises $13.6 million CAD to ramp up production of battery-powered boat motors

boat

Vancouver-based ocean tech startup Acel Power has closed $13.6 million CAD ($10 million USD) in Series A funding to scale up production of its battery-powered outboard boat engine. 

The funding was led by Tau Capital, an Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE)-based venture capital firm focused on sustainable science and technology. Brad Allen, managing director at Tau Capital, is joining Acel’s board as a director as part of the deal. No other investors were disclosed in the company’s funding announcement.

In a statement, Anthony Liu, CEO and co-founder of Acel Power, said Acel’s latest funding round will allow the startup to accelerate its growth strategy.

Acel claims that its electric motors last five times longer than gas motors.

Founded in 2021 according to New Ventures BC , Acel Power designs and manufactures electric propulsion systems for the marine industry. The company is best known for its electric outboard motors, which include 50- and 75-horsepower models. 

These electric motors are designed to offer a sustainable alternative to traditional gasoline engines. On its website, Acel claims its electric boat motors last five times longer than gas motors, and are quieter than typical boat propulsion systems.

According to a statement from Acel, the company’s motors can be found on recreational and commercial boats in North America and Asia.

Gas-powered motors emit hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides that degrade air quality and contribute to smog. These motors also often discharge unburned fuel into the water, which can contaminate marine ecosystems with harmful chemicals.

Acel’s outboard motors are electric and powered by lithium-ion batteries. These types of batteries emit significantly less pollution compared to traditional gas-powered engines, but they are not without environmental impact.

The mining of lithium, cobalt, and other metals used in these batteries often involves environmentally harmful practices that can lead to habitat destruction, water pollution, and carbon emissions.

Transport Canada, which regulates road, rail, marine, and air transportation in the country, is planning to undertake several regulatory initiatives over the next two years related to vessel pollution and marine environmental protection. 

Proposed changes to the Canada Shipping Act, for example, would create a framework to provide greater protection of marine species and the marine environment from the impacts of navigation and shipping activities. This could result in “small impacts” on vessel owners, Transport Canada said in a statement in March.

“With the shift in environmental regulations and growing demand for sustainable solutions, Acel is exceptionally positioned to meet the market needs,” Allen said in a statement. “We are impressed by Acel’s patented technology, manufacturing capability, hardware-software integration and experienced leadership.”

The new funding will enable Acel to expand its mass production capabilities. It will also support the company’s research and development, operations, and sales efforts. Acel plans to introduce two new electric outboard motors, with 150 and 250 horsepower, to the market this fall.
