The lug-rigged ship's boats and some of the older British dinghy classes appealed to him, and that is where design discussions began. This new design has plenty of rocker to make sure she tacks smartly, and enough deadrise to get the weather bilge out of the water in light conditions.
Sailing "Skylark"The plans show two rig options, the simple standing lugsail which was this owner's choice, and a gunter main and jib. She has red cedar planking and local (British Columbia) Garry oak for frames and centerline. I prefer 1 plan per item leaving a general arrangement plan to explain heights above a base line and frame spacing’s.
Others have used 1 set for building  component frames and the used a second set for checking the final frame with. All print shops use Adobe as their main reading and printing software. We use  Kwikopy locally and clients in the US have use Kinkos nationwide.
All plans come with a full set of PDF files (Adobe reader files) from the parts themselves to the general arrangement plan. This iconic racing boat was originally designed by George Crouch in 1924 and went on to win the 1924 and 1925 APBA Gold Cup.
It has been said that the 16 foot Gar Wood speedster is, pound for pound, the most valuable classic production speed boat in the world. There are some 15 frames, 2 keels, twin hatch assembly, vertical cleats, gas tank fixing, drivers bench seat, breast hook, front and rear stems with knees etc. Location: Boksburg South Africa 14 foot plywood dinghy sailplan After 40 years of sailing other designer's dinghies, I decided to design my own 14 foot plywood dinghy.
The closest boat out there is the phantom, but I have moved the widest point back and made the entry sharper and longer.
A lot of mast rake to reduce the load on side stays, as the hull is fairly narrow in the side stay area. I weigh in at 100kg, so I want to initially sail on my own, but the cockpit is roomy enough to sail as a 2 up without trapeze or spinaker. Location: USA Here's another on the same idea of a high performance 14' planing dinghy.
I chose the construction method of the Phantom as I have previously built a Phantom and found it a quick and easy method.
Too much mast rake will affect downwind speed, and make main sail hard to set effectively down wind in the light.
Look at the newer international 14s, they have moved the mast well aft to increase jib area, which would get your stays to a wider point on the boat. If you mostly plan to sail alone, I would strongly suggest a self tacking jib, or at very least lead the jib sheets further back than normal to allow you to quickly access them after tacking. It may just be the angle of the drawing, but the centreboard looks a long way aft for a sloop rig.
Originally Posted by JRD If you mostly plan to sail alone, I would strongly suggest a self tacking jib, On a singlehanded boat without a spinnaker a self tacking jib is very much a mixed blessing, which is why most International Canoes don't have them. An overlapping jib is probably not a good idea since it will dump you in the water, is more difficult to set and prone to snags.
If you don't plan to use a trapeze and your boat is well constructed with decent structure to support the rig loads then you probably don't need to worry too much about the staying base. Location: Boksburg South Africa A pic of the enigma hull Thanks for all the advice. The ends of the sheets should also be tied with shockcord across to the weather deck to make them reachable.
Just from a glance, that fine bow doesn't appear to have huge amounts of reserve buoyancy up front - fine, but you will be able to drive the bow right into waves and have lots of water passing through & over. If you use a sailmaker who has experience with the squaretops - Glaser, North Suncoast etc., you should not have to pay a huge premium for the sail - square footage is square footage. Make sure your sailmaker knows exactly what tube (mast) you are using and it's characteristics. Location: New Zealand Nice work, its always great to see someone who has followed through with their plans and built something to their design. Something I forgot to mention with sqaure top mains is that they are generally matched with carbon fibre masts that are quite stiff.
If you are trying to keep your costs right down, an untapered mast along with dacron sail will be the cheapest. Another boat you could have a look at for ideas is the New Zealand Jollyboat designed by John Spencer. I agree with g Guest that the self tacking jib can be a mixed blessing but my boat was originally an NS14 which I sailed one up with a standard non overlapping jib (No track).
If you are just cruising in straight lines alot its good, but if you are racing and doing alot of manouvures then you may find that the benefits of having an overlapping simply rigged jib will be outweighed by the amount of time you spend sailing at half speed while you are trying to handle two sails at once. Whilst I have not seen one first hand I understand that the Swift-Solo has the jib rigged to trim in tune with the mainsail with a single sheet and some adjustments on the relative tension of both sails. Originally Posted by slomoshun I intend to use a jib with a long foot to make the jib sheets easier to reach.The ends of the sheets should also be tied with shockcord across to the weather deck to make them reachable.
Rather than shockcord the ends of separate sheets I would use a continuous sheet on a boat like yours. I don't know I'd want to advise you on what jib setting system to use other than to have a none overlapping jib. Location: UK I agree with others here that its good to see someone actually building according to their ideas rather than just speculating about performance. One thing I dont understand is that you intend to have mast rake to reduce load on the side stays. If you do decide to fit this dinghy with sitting out racks then you could obviously extend the racks sufficiently far forward that the shrouds can be attached to them giving a good wide shroud base. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Most folks building wooden boats start with something a bit simpler -- and easier to build! Some issues you may encounter are that the current class boats are made from composite materials, and trying to 'retro-fit' these out of wood may result in some spectacular breakages.
Unless you plan on actively racing your boat, many of the modern designers have 'go-fast' models with plans and support that should meet your needs -- and be much easier to build from modern wood materials. I recollect that there the GP-14's were intended for home builders, patterned after the International 14's of the time and fairly close to them in performance.


I taught intro to boatbuilding classes for years and used a clinker cedar on oak dinghy as a basic project because they are easy. Some of his clinker dinghies also have a bit of a early international 14 feel in terms of appearance - but the plans are hugely detailed and have been built by many first time builders. They are also lighter so probably have a better performance and durability because of the glued lap construction. Despite her modest sail plan, Slider is not a slow boat, particularly when compared to monohull open cruisers of similar size and power (and substantially less luxury. Her shallow draft and flat bottoms make her easy to beach and to trail on a simple home-built trailer. The plans include eight 11" X 17" drawings, and a 12,000 word builder's manual, as well as email support from me. When I first thought about building Slider, the idea of selling plans seemed a little goofy to me.
Maybe it is, I thought, but fortunately, this sensible view of sailboat design did not deter me from trying. Because I kept imperfect notes during building, my estimate on materials needed and costs involved may not be accurate. In this video, we're sailing to Destin in Slider, the 16 foot beachcamping catamaran I designed and built. Solid timber usage is more difficult to estimate, because I was completing a number of home improvement projects during this time. I used approximately five gallons of Epoxy, but this included glassing the hulls to only two inches above the waterline. For the center deck and the duckboards in each cockpit, I used unfinished cedar, both for low maintenance and for good footing. My son took this video in very light air, standing waist deep in the water, as Slider sailed past.
No permanent fasteners were used on the hulls, but I went through a couple boxes of drywall screws, which were used to hold the planking to the stringers until the epoxy kicked. It can still float and be rowed with an adult (Me 200lbs) plus two children aboit (60lbs) each, albeit the freeboard is quite small. Better to have children learn to row etc than give them an outboard engine (basically an unprotected liquidizer). Hull type: Flat bottom, rounded bow garvey style developed for stitch and glue sheet plywood. For safety, the TUBBY TUG has four watertight compartments that provide flotation even if the boat is filled with water. The hull is built from standard 8' sheets of plywood by the Stitch and Glue construction method, described in detail in the front of our catalog. Pat, this one is more what you asked for but note the difference in weight and power requirements.
Hull type: FAST-G Stitch and glue construction with sheet plywood developed to assemble flat and fold to form a 12o vee bottom with built-in chine lift strakes and spray deflector.
The BULL'S-EYE utilizes Fast-G Stitch and Glue construction; the plywood planking is cut from standard 4' x 8' panels, assembled flat on the ground, and folded to form the boat.
Sail type: The Bull's-Eye can be built using three different rig options, all with daggerboard.
Thanks everybody, I think I have to build that Bulls Eye, its not bad looking and might replace my dinghy, too. I took the time to laminate the thwart, rudder and daggerboard which added substantially to the construction time. Thinking back to my childhood , I thought those runabouts at the fairs and carnivals looked cool . I would think something with rocker in the bottom like a dingy (full displacement) for stability and low speed. A technique I learned on the seams - lay the fillets with thickened epoxy and then put the tape on right away, smooth it all in place with some extra neat epoxy and PeelPly as the final layer and you'll literally eliminate sanding the joints.

Other than getting feet, inches and eighths of inches onto timber at full size, there really is too much information for a single plan. Most frustrating of all is the fact that so many offsets are wrong, these offsets where generally taken after the boat was built and it’s easy to see how they where either measured or copied down wrong.
Some builders have printed their own plans at home first at say 1:10 and built up a scaled model first.
Directions for building are not included as we cannot afford the time to discuss or cover all possible building methods. All individual parts are full size and labeled so there is no confusion as to which part you have.
However the Canoe does have the advantage that the sliding seat is used to help sheet the jib in after the tack.
You should talk to your mast supplier and sail maker to make sure what you are ordering will work together which ever sail profile you choose. Im not sure how Dacron would go with a square top main, as they are ussually based on film composite sails with full length battens. These have very simple construction and have a relatively low cost rig and plywood construction, and they are annoyingly quick to race against, with and without a crew, so have some similarities with what you are building. Tacking was a pain and not being able to ease it quickly in gusts also made the boat prone to being knocked down a bit in gusts. The easy way to rig this is to have a single long sheet which stays on the boat and a short length of line which stays attached to the jib clew by looping it through so there are two short tails. I also find it instructive that people, even Olympic sailors, don't sail two handed boats adjusting the jib exactly in sync with the mainsheet all the way up the beat. On the other hand, with such a triangular shaped hull as seen from above, you might find that you dont really use the forward part of the racks for sitting out, in which case you could save some weight and windage by having relatively short racks not extending as far forward as the shrouds.

Much of the luxury derives from the fact that Slider is a catamaran, and consequently has a very stable and level ride. She tacks effortlessly, unlike many cats, which as a breed are notorious for being slow in stays. Her mast can be raised or lowered in moments, because her forestay is tensioned with a zero-stretch Dyneema lanyard led back to the forebeam.


It did, however, keep me from taking a lot of pictures of the many elements that make up a little sailboat, nor did I keep acurate records of everything I did. 4mm ply would do for planking the topsides, if glassed on both sides, but I’d stick with 6mm for decks and hull bottoms. I want to make a toy boat for a boy, a real boat, something 10 feet or so, I have seen some of these, built of plywood and resembling 50s runabouts, something you can put a 5 horse outboard on and allow a youngster to tool about in.
A 10 foot boat doesn't have all that much interior space and when you deck it over, ala runabout, you eliminate a lot of utility. Displacement hulls are very stabile, don't plane and are limited to speed below about 8 MPH. With patterns for virtually every part of the hull, including planking and decking, the hull takes shape quickly, and building is a FUN project. Build it either way, but be ready for the attention you'll get trailering, launching, or underway. There are watertight (foam filled optional) compartments that will support several hundred pounds even with the cockpit full of water. Graduate to sail with the simple free sanding cat rig, or for a more lively craft, use the fully stayed sloop rig. Use a sheet bend (better a double sheet bend) to attach each short tail to each end of the jib sheet. There are three possibilities I guess, self tacking jib on a track, self tacking jib on a spar (club foot) and non self tacking. If you have too much area at the top for the mast bend then the sail will twist off and depower before you run out of sitting out power no matter how much kicker you use, whereas if you have too little then the rig won't dump power well and be much harder work to sail. Even more luxurious is the adjustable seating within the hulls, where much of the crews’ bodies are protected from the elements.
This is undercanvassed, by the standards of beach cats such as the Hobie 16, which carries 218 sq.
She has a deep offset daggerboard in the port hull, and moderately high-aspect kickup rudders.
She has a modest amount of weather helm, so that if the steering line is released, she comes up into the wind and waits there, sails luffing, for as long as necessary.
I guess I was afraid that the little boat, when I completed her, would be one of those eccentric creations, like a pram rigged as a brigantine, that everyone enjoys seeing when one comes sailing by, but only their owner really wants.
The boat is handy, goes well to windward, has a lively turn of speed, and above all, is unbelievably comfortable, for a 16 foot boat.
I used a high-quality birch underlayment called Multiply, because it was available locally, and was a lot cheaper than marine plywood.
I cut my own tapes from this material, because a tape without a selvage makes a smoother joint. Other large timbers were the beams– 10 foot 2X6, and the mast, which was laminated from 2 16 foot white pine 2X4s, then rounded and tapered. The forestay is tensioned in a similar manner, but the lanyard is taken aft to the forebeam, so that the mast can be dropped just by casting the lanyard off a cleat. But if you just want a roomy, simple to build, stable craft for fun on the water, the window can be eliminated. They become tugboat captains or explorers, chugging out into an imaginary world full of danger or adventure.
The traditionalist may prefer the classic sprit rig with wood spars that can be carried inside the boat for portage. It has numerous advantages including a more effective planform and automatic gust response.
The typical setup on ICs is to have a barber hauler or similar arrangement just in front of the mast which adjusts to control leech tension and sheeting angle to get the sail to set correctly, and then have the sheets run back to a turning block and cleat much further aft to put them in the right place to sail the boat. Its less string in the boat, no need to figure out which rope to pick up (its suprisingly easy to grab the wrong one even if they are different colours!) and very staightforward to rig and derig. You'll need to increase the sail area to fet the same type of performance, maybe contact Oughtred directly, because he likes performance boats. The helmsman steers facing forward in a comfortable molded seat, using a steering line that runs around the perimeter of the center deck and hulls.
She goes quite well to windward, especially considering her sprit-sloop rig, with its home-made mainsail. While she makes her best speed to windward with the sheets cracked slightly, she has a remarkable ability to pinch up and keep sailing more slowly, when necessary to clear a buoy or other obstruction. She’s remarkably dry in a seaway, the seats are luxurious, visibility is perfect, and steering is easy. A prettier, lighter boat could be built using clear Douglas Fir, which is widely available from local lumber yards, but is more expensive.
Even though this boat was designed with children in mind, we expected that adults just might want to take her out once in a while. This isn't our opinion, written to enhance the boat; it's a fact reported by the many builders.
The club foot is probably least efficient, but on a boat intended for recreational cruising sailing its really convenient and its nice to be able to just roll the sail round the spar at the end of the day (assuming a rope luff and a separate forestay with the wire in).
Once at anchor, luxury takes the form of a fairly spacious tent, which allows two people to bed down on the center deck, with one cockpit and its seats enclosed by the tent, and the other cockpit open for access to the outside world.
I chose this ancient configuration out of a personal curiosity about its suitability for a tiny cruising multihull, but I’ve also drawn a conventional Bermudan rig, and such a modern rig would have its mast stepped in exactly the same spot. No complex grids or tedious layouts from dimensions are required with Glen-L Fast-G construction. You can add ballast or weighted keel to counter stability problems but draft will go up and you will lose a little speed. For a serious racing boat I am convinced that the non-self tacking jib with barber hauler etc gives the best control of the sail shape and thus upwind performance. Nearly sank it during OPSAIL76 when I went about a mile and a half out to see the Swedish ship come through (rumor was they has topless female crew members ). In addition, Slider is intended to be sailed by two crew, one remaining in each cockpit in most circumstances, and without any necessity for the leeward crew to scramble across to the windward hull on every tack.
Caught a big piece of air, engine whining like a stuck pig, and slammed down on the back side trough.
