Looking in Wooden boat plans for a suitable Rowing jon boat. This book is full of sailboats.
Some flat bottom boats with Drop center boards, Dagger boards etc.
Apparently the Sq Ft of Sail is important.

Why?
Is too much or too little very important?
How do you know the right amount?
How about the Ballast for a given amount of sail etc?

Flat bottom or round bottom?

This will probably get erased but go over to sailnet.com and ask your questions. There's probably 1000 times more sailors there than on boatered.
