16 ft Double Ended Sloop, Design #165

A recent addition to our list of small daysailers is this lovely half decked double ender in traditional plank on frame construction.

The drawings are heavily detailed and include developments of the stem and sternpost. The boat is unballasted with a wooden centreboard.

Oars and rowlocks provide auxiliary power. This one should be a lot of fun to build and sail.
