Ladybug boats look great!! I have only seen them online but they are basically a Brockway style skiff with flair.
Brockways were built in Old Saybrook and are very popular with commercial fishermen and working yards. Very stable and tough.
I have probably built over 30 Brockways with high school kids over the past 10 years ranging from 12 to 20 feet long and they are what they are, a plywood boat. Some have been known to last over 20 years so if you don't mind wood, don't be afraid of the plywood skiff.
I would say go for it, if you do buy one post up plenty of pics, I am a big fan of that style boat. Currently we are building a 20 foot Scow and have taken the lines off an original Brockway, should be interesting.
