A very simple 18’x 5’2’’ ply sharpie drawn with a simple unstayed sprit boom rig and a ply centreboard. Ideal for estuary cruising and an excellent ‘big’ boat for first time construction. In it’s basic form 10 sheets of 3/8’’ ply and 1 sheet of 1/2’’ ply are used.

Below is an example of the Drake 18 by Adrian While.
