Frigate's Boat Plans
A 23’3” Ship’s Boat for Mr. Ian Bloomfield - this is a strip planked version of a 17th/18th Century Frigate’s Boat - she is modelled on the bluff bowed craft used for general work in the Fleet and will have a carronade with it's slide mounted on the bow! She carries a windlass so that the mast arrangement can be used as a derrick. She has a gaff cutter rig. Beam is 8'.
Whilst we understand that not too many clients will want to build her, she represents the sort of interesting craft we researchand get involved in.
