    Default Dobler Skiff Plans

    I wonder, does anyone know where a set of plans for Dobler's 16 foot skiff, I believe aka Lissa, might be found? Tom F-Jones mentions the boat in one of his books, and there is a version supposedly similar called the Otter (maybe from but I was hoping to find the wellspring itself.
    Many thanks,

    Mertens just completed an S&G version of the 16 foot Dobler sailing skiff. He was very complimentary of the original design and of Doblers engineering skills.
    Just did a search of and came up with the name "Joseph Firth" as the purveyer of Dobler's original plans. Not familiar with the name.

    Dennis M. has one, perhaps he will weigh in. He just finished a major overhaul this past winter - she's a beauty.

    Not meaning to revive the dead, but plans for Dobler's Lissa are available from Duckworks.
