The sailing rig plans for theCH pram are well underway.John is finishing the drawings,then Ruth gets them for labelsand all that. Many construction details are shown on the plans; clear and detailed specifications are provided for the construction, also list of materials and fasteners. She is shaped to be a good small rowing boat for one rower (or two kid rowers, each with an oar, side by side.) Her stern transom is large enough to carry a 2HP outboard. Instructions also included for building the reusable building jig, of standard lumber yard materials. John designed and built his first glued-lapstrake boat (Rozinante, a 15’ light, fast rowboat) in 1987, and we have been designing and building glued-lapstrake boats together since 1990.
She tows easily, with excellent manners.The Compass Harbor pram has a narrow flat bottom with generous rocker (fore-and-aft curve) and glued-lapstrake sides. For more than a decade, we ran our own shop building custom boats to our designs and those of others, including Iain Oughtred, Doug Hylan, and Harry Bryan. During that time, we published our first two sets of plans, for the 12' Ellen sailing dinghy and the 18' Peregrine fast picnic rowboat.


We’ve specifically designed and organized them to make building your boat as clear and easy as possible. Patterns are included for every part of the boat, including scaled plank patterns.Sail rig?Yes, there is now a great fun sail rig! Lots of ideas to choose from, prototypes to build (and use.) Your suggestions welcome!American FolkBoat 26. Our good friend, accomplished builder, and former student Bruce is now building our newest design, the 26’ American Folk Boat. If you’d be interested us building an American Folk Boat for you, please let us know. Many photos and more information, as well as direct downloads for the study plan, lines, sail plan, are now here on the site.
More than 20 of these boats have been built, as kits in WoodenBoat School classes and from the plans, by home builders and also in WoodenBoat School classes.Ellen 12 sailing and rowing boat and Peregrine 18 fast rowboat plans. Our popular, capable and fun 12' Ellen daysailers and 18' Peregrine fast light rowboats have been built by many home builders and WoodenBoat School students, and are now out there in many parts of the world enjoying waters salt and fresh.


We’ll be putting up more info about these designs, from idea to launch to alive and sailing. Just for fun John counted up all the designs filling his sketchbooks and notebooks, and got up to seventy boats easily. John continued to teach at the WoodenBoat School, and we managed an article or two for WoodenBoat.
And John kept filling his notebooks with boat ideas, boat designs, new building techniques, and, as always, more jigs.
