A 12'6" rugged daysailer, we've carried plans for this boat for years. What makes this landscape-formatted book unique is you are actually seeing each and every of the thirty-five pages (albeit in reduced size) of the plans which sell for $125. Gifford has added a bit of design commentary as well as information about sailing Marisol in his homewaters of Auckland, New Zealand. Measured metrically, she's a v-bottomed dagger-boarder built in glued-lapstrake plywood, with sawn frames.
