North Sea 29

The North Sea 29 is a centerboard boat designed for sailing in the rough North Sea. She's a fairly heavy displacement boat that should prove a very capable ocean cruiser. She offers excellent stability and the promise of good performance, while the centerboard will make it easy to escape crowded anchorages or explore shallow cruising grounds. Plans for the North Sea 29 include computer generated offsets with no lofting needed. No building molds are used — four laminated ring frames plus bulkheads provide the mold over which the strip planking is fastened. The strips are then covered by two layers of 1/8″/3mm veneer. Study plans include a copy of the detailed construction key.
