A 3' -4" (ish) mini version of the Winchelsea design.We have built quite a few of these and the uses for this little boat are many - a garden ornament, planter, indoor feature, book shelf unit, wedding or exhibition centrepiece, a rocking boat for kids, toy box, pond decoration and this is just what we've built so far have been used for. Now, we have drawn up full size patterns and step by step instructions package so that you can build your own. The plans show how to make it as a garden ornament or planter, as above, which could also be displayed indoors. They also give details and patterns of how to add rockers which turn it into a rocking boat for the younger sailors to enjoy. You can add a little pair of oars too.

The step by step instruction manual and a total of 14 A3 sheets of Full Size Patterns for every part of the boat which details how to build this great little boat from 1/2 a sheet of 4mm and 1/2 a sheet of 6mm ply and a couple of lengths of stripwood.
Although the plans give the patterns for the breasthook, knees and thwarts in plywood, solid wood could be used to make this look even better.
Full size patterns for the rockers and their supports is also given.
It is built in the same way as the full size version so it could be useful as a trial build before you try a full size boat of this type of build.
 

As with our full size boats, our free help while you build service is available.
