Start with John Gardner's "Building Classic Small Craft" there's a chapter on St. Lawrence Skiffs, history and some plans and offsets. You can get blueprints from Mystic Seaport's ships plans dept. G'luck

Ben, Check the Mystic Seaport website, last time I checked they had about 15 or so different versions that you could buy - http://www.mysticseaport.org/research/ro-shipsplans
My favorite is the "Annie" version. If you want some great pictures go to http://home.comcast.net/~qboats Keith Quarrier makes the nicest ones I've ever seen.
