Table of offsets or full size templates. I also prefer the look of a S&G hull. Some look boxy like the chesapeakes but my Cirrus is a good looking boat. The CLC kayaks have offsets in their plans. The Cirrus had templates.
Aesthetics aside, I prefer soft chine or rounder Botton hulls to paddle.

I've taken on board some of the comments and now leaning towards a 16' boat. Most likely a Ches 16 hull as the offsets are in their book, "The new kayak shop". I also have the offsets from my Ches17 build but if I do a 16 I only need to buy 2 sheets of ply.
