    Lovely looking hull and the colours work well with it.My only criticism is that they need a tiller extension so the helmsman can move forward and reduce the drag from the partly immersed transom.

    What a lovely dayboat. I'd have her ketch rigged, not yawl rigged. Then the mizzen would have some real power.

    There are no bottom boards either, so the frames would be an issue.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    She has been kept quite simple and basic. Which I rather like. Guess she can be "improved" as required, but nice to be able to start with a minimum fittout.

    Going to take on a fair load of water when righted, i am not so keen on these larger, mostly open boats, for that reason. Given a crew load of people, and possibly the reason for having a boat this size, probably not an issue, 3 crew with buckets can shift a lot of water. As usual, nice lines.
