Babson 14

Build the Babson 14 from scratch! Plans include three variations on the hull: sheet ply (like our kits), glue-lap-ply, power, suitable for up to a 2 horsepower outboard.

Plans contain 16 sheets of drawings, full-sized mold patterns so no lofting is required (no offsets are included with the plans).

Boat requires 2 sheets of 1/4″ ply, and 2 Sheets of 3/8″ ply.

The rig is same lug rig as used on the Joel White-designed 7′7″ Nutshell Pram, although with a longer (8′-9″) mast.

Intended capacity: 2-3.

Suggested oars: 7′9″ (but the standard 7′6″ or 8′ are fine...)
