I am looking for a displacement boat that I could spend the winter working on and put in the water for next season. The reason I am looking for a build that I can do quickly is that we are not sure if a displacement boat is for us. I guess I am looking for some opinions and some people's experience as to how long things take. Perhaps another way of deciding if a displacement boat is right for you is to take out your current planing boat for a day and do not run it at more than 6 knots. We have tried to use our current boat at displacement speeds but it is about 6mph anything over that the steering is constantly correcting. I do like the look of the handy billy but would it be semi displacement which I am ok with but would it ride the same?
When I hear the request from someone looking for a displacement boat in the range you mentioned the first designs that come to mind are Paul Gartside. I would suggest Doug Hylan's Point Comfort; easy to build, and among the best of both worlds. I don't have one so can't give you a first hand report, but being relatively long, narrow, and with a fine vee entry and long moderate rocker aft I would suspect they handle very well at lower speed.
Location: New Zealand Have a look at these hulls, better than a flat bottom less hp to drive and greater stability! Lemme see if I can get an image or two uploaded here just to keep the thread up to date eh?


Of course Now she weighs so much that the lil 25 hp Mariner just wouldn't quite plane her with anything but me aboard - so much as a stiff headwind would knock me off plane and one passenger turned her into a slug displacement 6 knot vessel that drank fuel like it was going outta style. For anyone contemplating building thier own alloy boat from a kit - there are a series of two Aussie boating magazine articles, where the female editor welded up her own 4.75 meter (16 ft) boat from one of CDM's Plasma cut kits.
You can get back issues of the two magazines containing the articles &photo's on the CDM plate boat project below.
You'd need the back issues numbers 61 from Jan 2001 & 62 from Feb 2001 available online thru the backissues order link off the mainpage link above to read up and get an idea of how hard or easy such a project can be. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals.
White oak is pretty white, you could actually bleach it if you wanted it whiter.My deck is white oak and blood wood. The traditional teak decks on earlier sailboats used holly for the white contrast strips in between the teak.
There's quite a few sailing dories around and some of them are St Pierre-ish in appearance, such as Glen-L's and Ken Hankinson's.
Designed with maximum cockpit size, both in length and width, and intended for day fishing trips in coastal BC.

I have construction background so I am good with tools, reading blue prints and I am able to loft.


So before I pick one of the many beautiful boats that will take me several years to complete I would like to get a sense of how we feel about it. Sounds like a great design for slower low fuel consumption cruising but not being confined to what can be the painfully slow progress of smaller full displacement hulls. You can get truly clear epoxy to avoid that part of the tinting, but I am not aware of a varnish (for UV protection) that doesn't imbue some 'yellow' or 'amber' tinting. A modern boat of traditional appearance with her lapstrake plywood topsides and wooden windshield frame. Commissioned by a Victoria BC client to be built by Nomad Boatbuilding, Victoria, BC. These boats do not have a lot of room inside for their length, but there is certainly ample room for a dedicated head, and comfortable cruising accommodations for two. If you're looking for any kind of decent sail performance, the keel dories of Benford would be a better choice. They are all relatively major investments of time and money, at least as I define those things.
The King Plank will be as dark a wood as I can find and I can stain it even darker if need be.My current dilemma is to choose a wood for this purpose.
A man in NZ has modified the design and enclosed the pilot house which I would think adds considerable living space.
