Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


This 12' x 4' rowing/sailing skiff was designed for Mr. M. Goodger who wanted a light, seaworthy skiff which would row well and optionally take a modest 35-50 sq ft sail. The attractive 5-plank hull is therefore based on the Stornoway 9. The drawings show the moulds/jig details for clinker/ply construction and plank shapes and details for stitch and tape construction using 4, 5 or 6mm ply.
