A boat that will row and sail well is a common request that this little double ender is designed to fill.
A recent addition to our list of small daysailers is this lovely half decked double ender in traditional plank on frame construction.
Anyone seeking an introduction to the carvel method would do well to pause and consider this little boat.
The model of a shallow, beamy daysailer is one seen elsewhere in this catalog:#107 Skylarkand#113 Jessieare close relatives.
Performance under sail will not match that of the lighter, beamier dinghies in the catalogue, but nevertheless this is a delightful small daysailer.
This is an intricate piece of work and a good deal more time-consuming than single skin construction, but the result is very pleasing and should stand up well without a burden of maintenance.
Skill level is high as are all our clinker designs but this is not a difficult shape to plank and frame. Wooden Boat Plans for Amateur Boatbuilders – Excellent Performance, Simple Construction, Step by Step Instructions Australia, USA, UK, Hungary, S.
First of all … welcome to those who have picked up a flyer from the Vancouver wooden boat show where the S12 Club prototype is making a first public appearance. Reduce the difficulty of rigging the boat – it should be easier than some 10 foot long boats. Despite being a svelte looking boat the starting point for the structure is a simple box – much like one of my very nice sailing  OzRacer box shaped boats. The boat has to be rigged and sailed to make sure everything works OK and to get the basic sail design and mast design to co-operate for the gust response we are looking for. Plywood becomes less and less viable as a decent boat building material in the Philippines.
There is one Goat Island Skiff that was built in Foam Sandwich though – it does add significant labour.
There is a worldwide market for off-the-shelf composite sheets as that alternative is quite expensive in other countries. PLEASE ALWAYS USE THE LATEST VERSION WHICH WILL CONTAIN ANY CORRECTIONS THAT HAVE BEEN BROUGHT TO THE DESIGNERS ATTENTION.
Download the Mk 2 Light Trow plans, and the model-making plans (making a model to be an important preparation for making this kind of boat).
I think this is a nice small open paddler, but bouyancy tanks or bags would be a essential if you’re going to do more than paddle in narrow rivers or small shallow lakes. Boatbuilding plans for the Black Skiff have been designed and made available for free by Mark Wallace – he says all he asks for is to be given the credit for designing the boat. Mark ways she’s a strong light-weight boat loosely with strong links to Scandinavian types. As my mind turns to building MY first boat during the winter months, I browsed and found many sites and such.
Glad to be of help Charli – which boat are you planning to build for your first boatbuilding project?
I made the model last night but i am unsure on how it scales up, i downloaded the zip file and i am unsure on how to use your co-ordinates, please help! These delicious photos come from regular contributor, boat builder, historian and designer Will Stirling of Stirling & Son.

Our Faversham-based friend Alan Thorne can help with boatbuilding projects - constructing to plans in very tidy stitch-and-glue or more traditional techniques.
Another boat launched at Lyme Regis Harbour by Boat Building Academy students this summer was an Andrew Wolstenholme-designed 12ft 5in glued clinker Mallard dinghy. Named Born Slippy, she was built by Dominic Frankis and Steve Bramley, along with other students.
Dominic took a sabbatical from work in London as a management consultant in the health sector. Steve worked as a tree surgeon and builder before joining the course, and is now using the skills he gained on the course to renovate a house.
The Mallard should prove to be a lot of fun; the rigging is more modern than is usually employed on these Mallard dinghies, which the Boat Building Academy folks say makes it quite a racy little sail boat. Have they not stretched it a little bit – and what were the racy improvements to the rigging? This 14ft Paul Gartside-designed Skylark traditional clinker-built dinghy made by Boat Building Academy student Jim Higginson with help from fellow students Paddy Uniacke and Mark Bestford is planked in slow-grown Douglas fir, which was also used to construct its birdsmouth-style mast. A similar 12ft Gartside-designed dinghy built by an earlier student caught Jim’s eye on a visit to the academy, and chose to build the boat partly for its looks and partly because of the range of skills it required to build.
Having graduated, Jim is now looking for opportunities to develop his skills, preferably through working with a traditional boat yard. Paddy successfully graduated as a seckhand on a Tallships Youth Trust voyage in 2007 and has since spent time working in Australia and New Zealand – one of his many and varied jobs included a stint at Freshwater Bay Shipwrights in Perth.
Like a couple of others in the same student cohort, Paddy left the BBA with a job lined up in a yard at Ipswich, working on the restoration of a Dragon. Mark returned to England two years ago after serving in the Merchant Navy followed by 22 years in the Royal Navy. On leaving the Navy, Mark worked in various roles including yacht skipper, sailing instructor and private charter skipper. Traditionally built 12ft Tideway dinghies are available to order after a gap of ten years – and the new version of the boat will be on show at the RYA Volvo Dinghy Show.
The TOA says that the new boat has already been bought by an existing Tideway owner and its members are very excited by the prospect of the new boat joining the fleet. It has enough beam and power in its sections to carry a rig to windward with some hiking out in stronger breezes. Contained here are all the elements of plank on frame boat building at the smallest scale and in a shape that will present few difficulties to the competent woodworker.
This one is a little longer than her sisters and carries a small amount of outside ballast and an efficient gaff sloop rig.
It is based on a traditional British beach boat model and its construction follows traditional practice. I have also thought it would be fun to build one of these with a small inboard and omit the centreboard.
Because she was designed for California conditions, we planked her double skin on bent frames, to ensure stability of the wood, while preserving a traditional feel. It is a performance boat similar in many ways to #113 "Jessie", but of much simpler construction, lighter displacement and better off-wind speed.
It would make an excellent project for those interested in practicing traditional building methods.

Generous beam and built-in buoyancy tanks fore and aft make this an ideal boat for learning to sail. But the fact is that the plywood becomes more and more difficult to find where we (Michael and I) live, the Philippines.
They’ve been chosen because they are derived from traditional boats, or in some cases simply for their usefulness. Note the near complete lack of wake, which should indicate that the boat’s working efficiently. The plans are not likely to be the easiest for first-time boatbuilders to follow, but it would be well worth picking the required skills up by reading one of the classic books on this kind of boatbuilding.
She proven to be an excellent rower, has a capacity of four adults and has a flat bottom for easy beaching. If not, if you know someone with some background in maths should be able to sort it out for you using pencil and paper. The Intheboatshed website is going from strength to strength; it is very popular with Google.

A keen traveller, Paddy eventually aims to take his skills to Canada and find boat building employment there. He’s now setting up a business at Chesterfield, Derbyshire, that will offer offer boat management, and mobile maintenance, repairs, and support services for private owners and marine businesses covering the inland waterways, reservoirs and coastal areas of the UK. Good Wood Boat specialises in building boats using Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) certified approved sources.
Traditional carvel on bent frames is the best match for the character of the boat and will be the most enjoyable to do. It has a beautiful set of lines with a high transom and tight tuck that will be great fun to build. The building method is traditional clinker on bent frames, centreboard is wood and the boat is open without side decks. We, at Tropical Boats in the Philippines, are exploring a variety of natural fibers, bamboo, abaca, sisal combined with fiberglass, carbon and various resins to build panels that take the place of plywood in stitch and glue (or tape up) designs.
The coordinates are pairs of numbers, as you'll have noticed, and each pair defines a particular single point on the ply.
There are a lot of points to plot, and when they have been plotted, you have to join the dots to make a complete drawing, as it were. Now back behind his desk, he also says it’s only a matter of time before he’ll be boatbuilding again. For a boat that must live on a trailer, the option of strip planking sheathed inside and out with glass cloth and epoxy resin is also shown.
I live on a river that empties into the Matagorda bay, here in Texas, and the wind blows regular like crazy. A straightforward building method and well detailed plans make this one well suited to the beginning boat builder.
