Skylark 8' Plans

Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


The hull shape of the Skylark 8 gives plenty of room right forward making her a good load carrier as well as very stable. We have had our whole family (2 adults and 3 young children) in her for pic-nics along the canal. She has a length of 7'11" and a beam of 3'8" and weighs only 60 lbs., making her easy to carry (optional wheels for pushing may be fitted to the skeg) and car topping. A small outboard may be fitted to the transom. Construction uses 2 sheets of 1/4" ply with pre shaped panel and frame shapes which are simply stitched together and taped with grp tape (basic construction takes only a weekend).Her simple rig and daggerboard make her ideal for children to sail.
