The Islay is a recent development of our Iona design for a client who required a graceful boat with more beam and a little more sheer. He also wanted a traditional cutter rig with a jaunty looking bowsprit. Construction can either be by the strip planked method (and computer lofted mould shapes are shown for this) or by the same method as that used on the Iona design with stringers and backbone laid over a system of mould shapes with the ply planking applied oversize and defined by the stringers. This gives a traditional clinker boat appearance but uses a much easier and quicker method to achieve it. Alternatively. plank shapes can be supplied for stitch and epoxy construction. Details are also given for a transom version.
