14' Rod Fishing Coble Plans
Cobles take many different formsâthis is a very different type to that found on the NE Coast of England which are used in the sea off exposed shorelinesâthis coble is of a type found on rivers and inlands waters and was used for rod fishingâmainly 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 plankâthe 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.
