This craft takes it's heritage from quite a number of traditional fishing craft used around the South West and French coasts for pilchard and mackerel driving. These boats had quite a number of subtle variations on the lug rig and in this case we have gone for a dipping main with standing lug mizzen mounted fairly well forward making a bumpkin unnecessary. The hull is a simplified form of a type which we have initially developed for constructing simple versions of classic motor boats. this uses pre-shaped ply sides which are attached to a computer generated framework of ply bulkheads and girders. The bottom is formed using arched ply in 2 layers and the round bilge area is strip planked with the whole hull sheathed in glass cloth. She has a steel centreplate and is fitted out in open fashion with side decks and thwarts and has areas for an outboard well and built-in buoyancy.
