Boat - Dory, Blackberry

The genesis of this design grew out of my experience with my Michalak Sportdory. Sportdory is a wonderful rowing boat, but it is a little too long and heavy to be car-topped easily. It is also a little too tiddly for fishing to be relaxing.

Canoe, Sailing - Build a design from 1876

The canoe is 13 feet by 31 inches, but no great harm can result from making it a little shorter or stretching it to 15 or 16 feet. Nowadays we would add watertight bulkheads in the ends for flotation.

Boat, Sail - Wildcat

A sailboard rig is going to be a winner on looks and also efficiency, but everything else about this boat has got to look cool and be efficient too - in order to match that sail in the kids minds, even the daggerboard and rudder have got to have a little something about them. It also has to be a sit-on boat rather than a sit-in one. The basic dimensions close I have chosen are close to those of a couple of plastic mass-produced designs aimed at the young and intended for the same sort of purpose as here.

Little Breton Lapstrake Pram

The idea for this pram came to me as I sat in the shade beside the dock of a small Breton port in late summer. A small boy not much older than my six-year-old son was playing in a round-bilged little simulated clinker pram; he was an expert at rowing and sculling and he seemed to be having a grand time.

Boat - Mouse

Mouse started life as a one-sheeter, that is, an exercise to develop the smallest, cheapest possible boat. As a result, it is not a boat to which you can safely trust your life in any sort of waves - as anyone who climbs into a Mouse will quickly realize.

Boat - Oarmouse

I think this boat could be quite something - a fast 14ft one-man rower that comes out of two sheets of ply. Designed for flat water, you will notice that in order to reduce the fuss at the waterline to a minimum, I have worked the waterline at the design displacement so that it just kisses the chine.

Boat - Dory 82

This one is the dory, or rather box shaped one that gave the highest work to flood inches figure for the two-chined hull forms.
