I was asked to design a handy little double ender for construction in welded aluminum and the Avocet was my answer. She is beamy, robust with enough space for a decent self draining cockpit, 2 berths a Porta Potti wc and sink and cooker.

The rig had to have as few strings as possible and be easy and quick to put up whilst the hull needed to have a shallow draft without a centreboard an be able to sit upright when she dried out.

Because she is made of aluminum I was able to integrate the ballast keel box with the hull so that access to the ballast is via hatches in the hull bottom allowing the lead shot to be adjusted in weight and position easily.

Motor power comes from an outboard mounted on a beam across the quarter deck.

Please note,  it is my intention to redraw these plans for plywood construction.
