Hi James, you could make a P.T.boat, Pilot boat, R.A.F. tender on that hull.
Just an idea.
I made a Springer Tug,(the plans are on this forum ). My 4 year old grandson loves sailing her
she has a rubber buffer all around and takes any type of abuse my angel
of a grandson can throw at it.
It is a very easy boat to make and costs very little in material.
Check the postings on springer tugs, they are a fun boat .
