12' Catspaw Dinghy

An open boat that rows with ease and swiftness and is stiff enough under sail to stand up to a breeze.

Construction: Carvel planked over steamed frames

Alternative construction: Lapstrake or strip

No lofting is required

Plans include 6 sheets

Please note: if using the molds in the plans instead of lofting, there is no mold for station 8. Joel felt the transom was near enough station 8, to skip a mold for it. If you are lofting instead, then you can loft mold 8 if you choose.
