The plans for the 16' Henley Slipper Launch include the hull panel shapes for a single chine "V" bottomed version and we were simply asked to take this model and stretch it to 18' - however, instead of just developing the hull panels, we have completed a complete separate set of plans for this new 18' version which is powered in the same low cost way by an outboard in a well aft. She has the length though to take an inboard engine if required.
The interior has the same forward double bench seat and aft side seats but this can be altered to suit.Construction uses either ply over frame or stitch and tape construction and requires 9 sheets of 6mm ply and 9 sheets of 9mm ply.
