16'x5'6" ply motor launch of ultra simple construction using pre-shaped ply hull panels, frames and transom. The chine joints are completed with epoxy resin fillets and tape making construction quick. A weekend's work will see the hull panels marked out, cut, stitched together, frames and transom in place and all seams epoxied. She uses 4 sheets of 6mm and 3 sheets of 12mm ply in her basic construction (hull, seats etc).
Approximately 250 lbs lightweight depending on how you fit her out. A 20 hp outboard will give a speed of around 25 mph. She can be fitted out to your own requirements. She was originally designed for Scottish waters where she has been very successful.
