The hull design is inspired by the early Loch Fyne Skiff sailing fishing boats traditional to the West Coast of Scotland a century ago with their generous beam, exaggerated drag to the keel, straight stem, distinctive pointed stern and steeply raked stern post with the rudder hung on the back.

Planked in 1 ¼” larch, all fastened with galvanised boat nails to 5” x 2” sawn oak frames at 14” centres.

Oak back-bone. External iron ballast.

Shallow bilge keels under the bilge spread the loads if allowed to dry out on her side on a beach.
