Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


Cobles take many different forms—this is a very different type to that found on the NE Coast of England which are used in the sea off exposed shorelines—this coble is of a type found on rivers and inlands waters and was used for rod fishing—mainly for salmon.

She has a very stable hull with a generous beam making her ideal for the fisherman who has to stand up and she is usually powered by sweeps (shown on the drawings) which are secured by a leather strap to a thole pin

The drawings are set up for clinker/ply construction with 6 planks per side attached to a narrow flat bottom plank—the mould shapes are given full-size and we could develop the plank/panel shapes for those who want to build her using the stitch and tape technique.
