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 http://koti.kapsi.fi/hvartial/ 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.
