16' x 7'. Very simple construction based upon 7 sheets of ply and easy "V" section hulls with no centreboards. Costs have been kept right down by using wood beams and a simple ply aerofoil section mast. Definitely a sporty fun boat for the beach and for some competitive single handed sailing. A poor man's Hobie cat. Easily demountable with everything secured by bolts minimal construction time.
