The Clyde 18 is a modified Power 1.3 Mk 1 design. The hull shape is a simple deadrise type, single chine 'V' bottomed. The hull is parallel sectioned aft of the wheelhouse which means that she can be easily lengthened or shortened.
Construction is for ply over a simple slotted ply framework - she can also be built using pure stitch and tape techniques and the panel/plank shapes are given for this.
The Clyde 18 can be fitted out in a number of ways - as drawn she has a self draining cockpit with an open backed wheelhouse and forecabin with 2 bunks and space for a small Porta Potti.
