Subject: [bolger] Daysailer Sharpie Design Selection
>>I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good design for a Sharpie
styled hull in about a 16' length. I would strongly prefer a plywood
or tac and tape design. I would consider a a larger boat I am
primarily interested in trailer sailing. And.... I do not like
I built and owned a 'Seahorse' skiff, designed by Iain Oughtred, for a number of years. It's 15'2" long x about 4'6" beam. It has a conventional centreboard.
It can be rigged with a spritsail or a lugsail, and there's even an option of jib and mizzen.
It's a fun boat, though pretty heavy for its size if you build it with the half-inch bottom that the plans specify as well as the buoyancy compartments.
It's great in semi-protected waters.
Please contact me off-list if you'd like to see photos etc.
