We designed the 16’ Stornoway for Walt Scherf and having built that boat, he asked me to draw up an 18’ fast dayboat based partly on the Stornoway model but with lower sleeker lines. What has evolved is a hull with 6 planks per side and a very narrow flat bottom panel to make construction easier. The plans have been drawn up for clinker/ply construction but the plank shapes are given for stitch and tape construction too. For both methods, construction starts with a ply backbone epoxied to the narrow bottom panel making a very strong ‘T’ section.

The standard plan uses a aerofoil sectioned daggerboard for maximum efficiency but she could take a hinged centreboard. There is plenty of room for buoyancy and dry storage.
