    Hello, I built a bigger version of Dispatch, with 8 strakes instead of 3.
    It works very well for rowing, and is fast under sail, but tippy.

    I enlarged the plan to 16ft, and the other dimensions to 115%. I've described its building on the french woobenboat forum, bateaubois.com : http://www.bateaubois.com/fora/viewt...5a368e3a1c4f97

    thanks, she is quite a boat. unusual to see a 16' sail and oar design going past all the others so easily.

    I swear that I didn't hide a electric motor
    I think it's thanks to its narrow waterline beam and its big sail plan. Thank you Mr Gartside !

    #147 has a similar hull shape, and the advantage of a centerboard instead of the daggerboard of Dispatch. It must be a beautiful and fast boat.

    Thanks for the postings - looks a very exiting boat but maybe a bit too so for a grandfather and small child
