15' Rascal Motor Dory/Skiff PlansThis is a simple and very easily built motor dory for use with outboards up to around 50 hp in size. She can either be made by wrapping the pre-shaped sides around the frames, fastening on an external chine stringer and then putting the bottom ply on oversize, or, by simple stitch and epoxy methods using pre-shaped ply bottom and side panels which are given on the drawing.
She can be fitted out very much to suit your own requirements and she could take a cuddy or small cabin. She uses 7 sheets of 9mm ply and has a length of 15â and beam of 5â6ââ.
