    A pretty little ship it is too. I like the wheels.

    The wheels make launch/ recovery very easy. Pick up the bow of the boat, push her down the slip, jump in and you're off! They are old lawnmower wheels bolted through the skeg on a length of stainless threaded rod.

    Thanks for uploading the photo. When I tried to do it I kept getting errors.

    I didn't upload...I just linked to your existing picture. Copy the URL of the picture you want to link to and then type "[img][/img]" and insert the URL between the open and close image html. Make sure there are no spaces inserted by accident and the image should be loaded from the other site every time someone views the page. If the site is down or the picture is removed then you get that little icon that means the picture is no longer available.

    This is a dutch, van der stadt design we own, the construction is frame, sheet, screw and glue really simply. The Spanker 19 was the first dutch 'camping boat' in the 60's she sleeps 4 and was intended for weekend tours. She handles very responsive and is nice and slippery. I am restoring and modifying her at present so I can take her from Holland to Santiago de Compostella, or actually Coruņa. I do have better photo's but there on my little black mobile drive which I dont have to hand at the moment

    There was going to a picture here but the website wont allow me to upload a 30kb picture maybe later.

    http://www.youtube.com/v/dAqJC2tYpT0?fs=1&hl=nl_NL

    Lets hope this gives you some idea, I'll try and up load photo again after NYE.

    Speaking of wheels ...
    ... just one wheel actually - a spare one intended for a snowthrower that I mounted on a piece of ply to fit in the daggerboard trunk.

    Boat Fan,

    Thank you for taking the time to look her up.

    Ours is #390 build in the early sixties, the plans are still available from van der Stadt in the Netherlands, where its also one of the oldest racing classes.

    That is gorgeous. I had a look at the rest of the slideshow and decided I would quite like one irrespective of its nesting abilities. Does anyone know exactly how long it is?

    I think it will be coming out as a kit from PT Watercraft - they hint that it will form the basis for a range of nesting dinghies.

    Does anybody have a decent pic of Stormvogle? Van de Stadt design for the owner of Brunzeel ply, and made of it. Looked at the charter site, not much there. Not too many ply boats of around 70ft.

    There are some really good looking designs here, I am starting to look at build plans for the next project, but am also considering developing a bigger version of the Spanker19 I have at the moment. But pretty glad to see what everybody else has.

    Very pretty. One more step to upload - there's a box pre-checked. It says, "Retrieve remote file..." Uncheck it. Should go fine then.

    Thanks for the considerate help on that, David.
    Let me add, ......she had Sitka spruce masts and booms. Didn't make a sound (creak, groan) even in heavy weather. Self vaned jib 'n jigger. Could steer her from the bow with the mizzen sheet. She was our loved liveaboard.

    Hi ,Tom Robb , Johnw , Lewisboater
    about 1 week ago there was a short communication amongst you about my unsuccessful replying,editing,posting of photos ,which led me to ask Johnw about Thorne. Being still a rookie to do good work with WBF ,Johnw's
    help about Thorne's thread was the effective advice. I deleted the badshaped reply and made now easily a better one.
    Thanks Walter

    Really nice looking outboard skiff. Can't make out the text on the stern quarter and it's hard to tell if it's flat bottomed or not; any chance you could provide some details on the hull? Thanks.

    Last Saturday, at the yard in Vietnam where is being built the big schooner, Mr. Truong, the foremen, took his little boat that he has just built, just for the fun and for a bit of sailing.

    As I know he is too shy to show it, I do it since this one definitely deserves to be here, in this wonderful collection of "pretty in plywood" boats.

    Looks like a Vacationer to me...Weekender's big sister. Look at the keel. It may have been the basis for this as there appear to be some divergences.
