How to Build Peanut (Pub. No. 7701)

by W.F. Crosby

Complete instructions for building a lap-streak dinghy. May be built 9, 10 or 11 feet long. Will work out well with a sail.

The construction of a small, light round-bottom dinghy such as Peanut is one that calls for some skill in the use of wood working tools, a degree of patience and the ability to read and understand the plans furnished herewith. While not as easy to build as the ordinary flat-bottom type of dinghy, the lapstreak round-bottom job has considerably more class and is always in demand by yachtsmen.

Pup (Pub. No. 7789)

by William F. Crosby

A small, neat, plywood catboat that can serve triple duty as a rowboat, outboard tender or as a fine sailer.

The plan for the little boat presented herewith makes use of plywood throughout except for the keel, chine pieces and clamps. The sides may each be made in one piece and the bottom may be composed of two pieces, one for each side. The skin of the boat is also reinforced by five sawed plywood frames and intermediate frames and stringers that leave but little of the surface unsupported.

Simple Little Sailing Skiff, A (Pub. No. 7846)

Designed by L.J. Gorenflo

The average sailing skiff is a poor performer but this little packet here skitters along pretty well and having a good-sized efficient dagger type center-board goes to windward well for her kind. She sails best with one but can carry two well enough. She is designed to be sailed with the helmsman sitting on the bottom aft. The boat is very simple to build and with the drawings here, and bill of material, anyone could build one. In building this boat you set up the moulds shown, as well as stem and transom (or stern board), and plank her up. After she is planked the frames are put in and the moulds removed. This is standard rowboat practice.
