    Default Drascombe Scaffie - refit

    I just purchased a 1979 Drascombe Scaffie that was converted to a marconi "cat" rig and I'm toying with the idea of converting it back to the original lug rig. I am looking for the original sail plan and specifications for the mast and yard sizing as well as the sail measurements. Does anyone have these or know where I can get them. I also have to replace the "new" tiller for one that has a hump to clear the outboard. I would like to have the the original sizing / shape for this (If there was an original). I've seen some where the rudder was changed out for a wooden one that looks nice. Thanks!

    You could try scaling this up

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Maybe this http://www.honnormarine.co.uk/Scaffie/scaffie.pdf will help with the tiller. You don't say where you are but but Honnor Marine may be able to help. http://www.honnormarine.co.uk/index.htm The index page will give an idea of the history behind the various 'makes' of John Wilkinson's designs.

    Great boats! Yes, join the Drascombe Association Forum

    The Scaffie was just reviewed in the latest issue of Small Craft Advisor, there are some owner names there that you may be able to track down through SCA or facebook. You'll have to order a copy or wait for the digital copy to show up in a few months. And there is also a facebook Drascombe group with a wealth of knowledge.

    Cheers
