This is the new, presumably more stable version of CNM-12212, named BIF16.

Tom writes:
I'm currently building a variation of this design but with a greater beam, shorter length, but the same displacement. Deadrise is about 29 degrees on this version.

This building method takes only about 70 hours to complete.

Boatbuilders out there, take not only a close look at this design; also notice the nice setup, sawhorses and beam - Hendrik

Length - 16ft
Beam - 20.5in
Depth - 12in.
Deadrise - 28.5 deg.
Cp. - .58
Weight - 26 lbs. (est.)
Displacement - 185 lbs. (5.2in waterline)

Here is a plan for BIF16, drawn by Tom Yost
