Jim Jacobs of Blue Heron Mercantile sells a book with plans for a priogue and I think at one time had a kit:

Google Uncle Johns pirogue that have a kit that includes the "hard" parts. You supply the plywood, fiberglass and paint. In one of Roy Underhills books he has plans for a dingy. The hard part is finding the right nails and roves. You can find nails and roves in the Lee Valley/Vertias hardware catalog....Eric[/list]
