main idea of this rig is performance with simplicity. The mast is
stepped in a loose socket, like a universal joint, to facilitate
adjustability. The rigging wire is set up with Dacron lanyard tails,
which are secured to the gunwales, eliminating chain plates.
The hard chined plywood bottom is fairly easy to build with the
exception of the forefoot that takes a mighty twist for a fine entry.
The original boat was built with Luan underlayment. Because of the
declining quality of the stuff I suggest using marine grade Occume
(Gaboon). The forefoot should be two layers of 1/8" laminated.
frames and gunwales consist of a lot of bits and pieces, all straight
forward and fairly easy to build.
flared topsides with reverse sheer makes it a very dry boat with
a lot of reserve stability. The roomy cockpit will handle four medium
sized people comfortably.
