Minimal Boat? Does anyone have plans or access to plans for a rowing boat around the six foot - two metre mark?

I want to build something that can be picked up by one man and carried to the water, but with as much stability as can be gained from such a short length?

google "mouseboat" there is a yahoo group for them, tons of designs, many sizes, and all for free, the designer Gavin atkin monitors the site and answers questions all the time.
another good site is done by an amature, he has great designs and good background on boat building and design aimed at ply and epoxy builders. I plan on building his olyimpic style rowing shell after I finish my second mouseboat.
There's a section halfway down the page with a bunch of rowboats.

Although a kayak or canoe is better designed for portaging.
