Discussions around designing small boats including kayaks and canoes.

shorter double

I am looking for a double strip kayak design,but am reluctant to build a 20 foot boat,feel this may be to long for our smaller river system,and to unwieldly to store. I like the size of the millcreek 16.5 with its 33 inch beam,and open cockpit,but I like using strips.am considering high capacity great auk,18 feet 30 inch beam gets the length down a bit,I could modify it with a long open cockpit and extra seat,is this the best choice?will be doing some fishing,and want really good stability,speed is not a big deal,will be coasting alot anyway,so could go more beam,but can't find a stock plan,and am not sure what plan to modify.can anyone help me out?
