      Sharpie implies a flat bottomed boat with a cat/ketch rig (periauger?).
      Short sharpies tend to morph into flat iron skiffs--any of which can be
      built of plywood. Oughtred, Bolger, Michalak, Welsford, Culler, and Atkins
      are only a few of the noted designers who offer plans for these boats.
      There is a fairly complete write up on a small sharpie in John Gardner's
      Buiding Classic Small Craft. A lot of choices; tough to pick just one.
