So there you are on Elephant Island longing for warmer latitudes. The penguin is getting a bit stale and you have decided it's time to sail for S. Georgia for a cup of coffee and swap a few tales with a whaler.
At your disposal is a well stocked shop with power, tools and Miss Makita hanging on the wall. You have your choice as to what wooden boat design you need to build for the voyage.
Modifications to original plans allowed so long as it doesn't exceed the original dimensions of James Caird by 5% and must be powered by sail and oars only.
So as not to let Ms. Makita become bored, what's your design choice and why?
