Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


The Thames 32 has primarliy been designed for Foam Re-inforced Plastic (FRP) construction - the plans give details of the male plug (so that a female mould tool can be made) which can also be built as a finished wood hull. The wood hull can be built entirely in clinker ply or with clinker ply topsides and roound bilged strip planked bottom.

By spacing out the mould shapes differently, the hull could be built at a longer/shorter round bilged and can be made using foam sandwich (FRP) and strip plank Cedar construction methods. The hull shape has a low wetted surface area shape with good stability and a reasonable freeboard for use in choppy waters - she has been designed with the Great River Race in mind.
