A beautiful hull Attention to detail and the best of materials have gone into this build. Ian Oughtred's glued lapstrake designs produce a verry strong boat with sweet lines. This boat will be a show winner.
The plans have been slightly modified. The hull has been stretched to 20 feet. The cabin is shortened to a cuddy (6' 4" berths). This provides for a spacious cockpit.
Laminated Honduran mahogany is used for inner , outer stems , keelson and sheer clamp. Floors and all other framing is also mahogany. Planking and bulkheads is 3/8 sapelle plywood. Okume 3/8" plywood is used for bunks and cockpit seating. Garboard planks and cockpit sole are 1/2" okume plywood. The keel deadwood is fir.
The bottom and motor well is sheeted to 3" above the waterline with an abrasive resistant fabric set in epoxy called Xynole. Two layers of Xynole set in epoxy mixed with graphite protect the center board trunk. Top sides have six coats of Awlspar varnish. Bilge areas finished with two coats epoxy,two coats epoxy primer, two coats bilge coat.
The glued lapstrake construction requires few metal fasteners-all are bronze.
