Table of Contents:

  • Row/Sail Skiff, An elegant and versatile 15' double-ender for rowing, daysailing, and beach cruising. Simple strip-composite hull.
  • *Catboat Dinghy, An 11' catboat that we can row or sail. The cold-molded construction demands experience, but the results look fine. By Charles Wittholtz.
  • Triple Keel-Sloop, Unusually striking 22' shoal-draft (1'6") sloop that requires no centerboard, leeboards, or deep keel. Traditional strip construction.labor intensive, but simple. A comfortable cruiser that will be easy to keep. From Phil Bolger
  • Nexus Dory, A 21' sheet-plywood, outboard-powered dory. Strong sheer and flare make this a good-looking boat. Cabin and open versions are included. A tough, seagoing pickup truck of proven performance. By David Roberts
  • Victoria, A robust 22' daysailer/camp-cruiser. Easy to build of sheet plywood or batten-seam construction. Light draft (1'4") lets us sail just about anywhere. None of today's stock boats can match her. From the Atkins
  • *Ninigret, An efficient 22' outboard cruiser/fisherman with the look of a good sea skiff. Plywood-lapstrake sides and sheet-plywood bottom. Pleasant cabin with removable cloth top. By John Atkin.
  • *Angler,  A sophisticated 24' high-performance (36 knots) fishing boat. Plans for this type of hull rarely see print.

    The boats come from the boards of Atkin, Benford, Bolger, Chapelle, Gillmer, Stambaugh, Stephens, and other leading designers.

  • Quality reproductions of the designers' original drawings
  • Complete hull lines for most boats
