Oar / Paddle


The versatile and easily built Scamp is an enlarged version of my Sprite design (see elsewhere in this directory). Scamp also has a broader stern transom designed to accommodate a small outboard motor for extended cruising. We use our Scamp as a beach cruiser for exploring some of our favorite sheltered waters. There’s plenty of room for two people, plus sleeping bags, a small tent and lunch box. In the evening we simply pull up on a beach and set up camp. Scamp is light and small enough to easily car-top or stow in the back of a compact pickup truck. Her sailing rig is larger than Sprite’s, but incorporates all the same features of simplicity and efficiency, and can be stowed inside the boat. The hull is built from 2 1/2 sheets of plywood.
