Maybe,just maybe,since you are refering to a very basic shape and
only wish to add two feet to her length,then you might be able to do
just that without touching any of the other dimensions.
This would,of course, require some extra waste in plywood and your
willingness to"loft" the expanded side panels out to a length needed
for a 10 foot version.Everything else,like the transom and frames
would remain pretty much as is.
Try it out,to the same scale as on the plans, with a model made
out of some heavy construction paper(cardboard) and see if you like
the looks ....adjust to taste :-)
