Dovetail is a Rich Kolin designed sailing/rowing skiff, built from his book "Traditional Boatbuilding Made Easy". She was my first boatbuilding effort and was launched in May, 1999. Straight ahead traditional flat-bottom skiff with a spritsail rig.

real purty boat! Love the green :D

So, how is the sprits'l working for you? Do you like it? Would you do anything different next time?

Chuck, I ended up replacing the sternsheets to a more wraparound style as you can see. I would be inclined to add a sprit-boom for better downwind performance. Rick
