This is a simply constructed miniature schooner for the sailing man who likes a classic sail plan. Normally, you would not find a schooner rig on any boat less than 30’ long and therefore less complicated rigs can be used. But if you like plenty of strings to pull or want to experiment in rig balance, this boat will offer plenty of fun. A water ballast tank is shown on the drawing which gives around 400 Lb. of disposable weight. She may also be fitted with an outboard well and built in buoyancy. Construction is based upon pre-shaped ply panels which are stitched together and finished with epoxy fillets and she may be completed as an open boat. The drawings also show details of a mark 2 version with a transom stern, outboard well and a beam of 5’6’’. LOD 15’; Beam 5’; Draft 10’/2’6’’; Sail Area 110 sq.ft.; Approx. dry weight 450 lbs.

The plans include details for an alternative 17'6" hull.
