14FT Double Ended Sailing Dinghy 'Skraeling' Design #260

Here’s a simple double ended skiff with a Scandinavian character.  A lively dinghy with room to take the family out, but still manageable as a single hander.   The drawings show two options for plywood construction – either glued lapstrake using ten strakes a side, or a simpler four panel method with a glass and epoxy skin.  This is a manageable building project that uses readily available materials, a project well suited to the home builder.
