Built in marine plywood and epoxy, weight is kept to a minimum without compromising on strength so you get a strong, lightweight and capable little boat. This is a relatively new design but is based on our tried and tested Watch Bell. This capable little craft is only 2.3m (7½ feet) long but will carry 2 adults with ease when rowing, motoring or sailing plus some gear. It might be more comfortable solo when sailing but can still carry two easily. The aft compartment is fitted with a small round watertight hatch as somewhere to keep car keys etc. while on the water. Further buoyancy is provided forward and under the side seats or by inflatable bags either side of the dagger board case, the cockpit sides and forward of the mast. All this is detailed in the plans as is making some oars.
