This is a simple ply cruiser designed specifically for canal use on the UK's narrow canals. She uses simple ply on frame construction and she has parallel sections aft which mean that she can lengthened or shortened easily.
The drawings are for the construction of the hull and superstructure only and we have a drawing showing two possible options as to how she may be fitted out. There is space for 2 single berths a dinette that can convert into a double, separate wc and galley.
