January 15, 2022
Here is another 23’ foot daysailer, quite similar to my previous SELKIE, but aimed more towards the home builder. Compared to SELKIE, she is lower sided (a bit less room below), lighter, and shallower. But the main difference is her glued lapstrake construction. She ould be a good project for an ambitious amateur – someone who has perhaps enjoyed building a simple boat and is ready to step up to a bigger project.
