Salt Bay Skiff

Intended for the designer and his 10-year-old daughter to build and sail together, the Salt Bay Skiff is easy and relatively cheap to build but is also a pretty boat worth having when the sawdust settles. Her lines are simple and elegant. She sails and rows easily at moderate speeds: a lively, safe and comfortable cruising boat, not a high-strung racer nor a heavy work boat. At 12' long and 80-90 lbs hull weight, she is easily cartoppable by one person, using a simple pair of wheels clamped to her transom. She is ideal for amateur construction, and although general woodworking experience is helpful, a reasonably intelligent beginner can build her  with a minimum of normal home-shop tools. She has been built with great success by high school students in in-school boatbuilding programs. She can be built without using epoxy, if so desired. Her plans and building instructions are quite complete, and include full-size patterns and complete dimensions, and email support as needed.
