  1. A really fun morning! The boats behaved beautifully!

  2. Where can we buy a mouseboat? Or cant you build them fast enough?

    • Nobody builds them to sell that I know of. The designer , Gavin Atkin doesn’t get any money from these boats, unless you buy his book about boat building.
      He gives the plans away as a free download, and will answer most builder questions on the mouseboats facebook page or yahoo group. Since this is a simple design, most builders are first timers and many questions are repeated. There are many other builders on the Yahoo group that will help also. I’ve built 8 mice so far, including one made of 1″ foam instead of plywood.
      If this article got you interested in a boat of your own, you should read up on building one! Good luck.

    • You must build your own.

    • I’ve built 8 mice including one made of foam instead of plywood, they are lots of fun.
      You can find the plans on the mouseboats yahoo group and can also find them on the mouseboats Facebook page.

    • Hi j bone,
      I build Mouseboats at The Purifier Building in Faversham. Please contact me if you’d like one built for you.
