Following is an assortment of hydroplane plans. These plans are not for the novice woodworker. Building a hydroplane requires a good knowledge and a lot of experience in woodworking techniques. For those that are competent woodworkers, the successful completion of the construction of a hydroplane can be a great ego trip!
Always read the hydroplane plans carefully and make sure that there is enough information provided for you to be able to complete the project - before you invest in materials. Some of the plans are excellent, giving a great deal of instruction in text, pictures and drawings while other plans are only drawings and still others are only sketches.
As well, some of the hydroplane plans, require a woodworking shop that is outfitted with a good selection of stationary power tools such as a drill press, jointer and thickness planer.
These hydroplane plans are for the expert woodworker and someone who has knowledge of mechanics.
