Stornoway 9 Plans

Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


The Stornoway 9 is the first of a new class of dinghies which incorporate firm bilges and moderately full transoms needed to carry loads safely and to give good sailing qualities without dragging a large transom through the water.
The plank shapes have been computer generated for simple stitch and epoxy construction and to make her eye sweet, she has 5 planks per side in addition to a narrow hog plank which greatly simplifies construction. She uses 3 sheets of 6mm ply for her hull and the sail rig can be added later. The bow shape can be modified to suit but a traditional stem shape is shown on the drawings.
