Seriously, I appreciate for feedback on my plans, both in relation to building and using the boats, I’m always pleased to receive photos, and grateful too for news of the adventures on which the boats sometimes take their owners. To download the construction plans for the sailing version of the Ella skiff together with the drawings Matt has been working from, click here. Hello Gavin, I am newbie to boat buildung and after finding your website it brings much information and inspiration to me!
As a first attempt in later real boat building I started to build an Ella model for my little daughter. I printed the pdf in format DIN A 3 (this means a 41 cm Ella) on a cardboard and glued the hull for getting practice.

Our Faversham-based friend Alan Thorne can help with boatbuilding projects - constructing to plans in very tidy stitch-and-glue or more traditional techniques. What I mean is, would this be something called a good practice when designing and building your own boat (or adapting plans from others…) to investigate or familiarise with the actual lofting and construction?
It shows how the design works, and reveals which parts of the project will be difficult and which will be easy.


For the purpose of making a model, I guess you could trim the bottom to fit the rest of the boat? Try scrolling down, clicking on the 'older posts' button at the bottom of this page - or try the search gadget! Because its my first stitch & glue model I tried to find out, whether there is a misunderstanding of the plans from my side before cutting plywood panels. So the printed first frame lines are on the the same level , but going to the back, the side frame line is more and more behind the bottom line in the plan.
