Sailboats Cruising


Raven Lady Plans

Designed as a cat schooner; both sails have big round poles at their leading edges. Considering the performance potential of this hull, this rig is appropriate. The stayless rig is clean and will be cheap to build with solid fir poles.




24-foot Lynx

The 24-foot Lynx was designed as the smallest boat with which a couple could contemplate an ocean voyage. The hull is a multi-chine hull to make it easy to build in flat plate steel. There are two chines.
