Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


The Redshank is a beautiful traditional English stem dinghy. Her length is 7’6’’ and she has a beam of 4’ making her a very roomy dinghy for her size. Full-size mould shapes are given so that she may be made by the purist using traditional clinker method or the modern clinker ply or strip plank construction methods. However, she was originally designed to be made using stitch and tape methods and the plank shapes are given for this. With 7 planks per side she retains a round bottom shape. She takes 2 sheets of 6mm ply and around half a sheet of 9mm ply for the rowing version with an additional sheet of 6mm and half a sheet of 9mm required for the sailing version. The drawings show all the details for a simple lug rig with rudder and daggerboard.
