This is a slightly smaller and more simple single chine version of the Grey Swan. The design is very adaptable and bulkhead positions, the rig and the keel configuration may be altered to suit your own individual requirements. All the panel shapes are given to you for simple and quick stitch and tape construction. The ply bulkheads can be epoxy filleted into place or have conventional wood fillets added to them for connection to the hull skin. The cockpit is self draining and the standard arrangement shows a simple box plywood ballast keel filled with 300 lbs. of scrap iron and concrete. Simple plate bilge keels allow her to sit upright when drying out. She could also be built as a simple open day boat with a centreboard. LOD 14’; LWL 12’9’’: Beam 6’; Draft 1’9’’; Construction weight approx. 1130 lbs.; External ballast 300lbs. Sail Area 94 sq.ft.
