by John G. Kingdon

Here are plans for a pint-sized V-bottom express cruiser that will really get up and go. Under the impetus furnished by a 33-hp. outboard, she’ll do 23 m.p.h. with two people aboard, And she’ll cruise along economically with this power at 19 m.p.h. Her name? It’s taken from a couple of lines in an old English Christmas song that fit the desires of boat-hungry fellows in moderate means: “If you haven’t got a penny, then a ha’penny will do. If you haven’t got a ha’penny, then God bless you!”  It is presumed that familiarity with boat terms is possessed by the man who is to build her. There is nothing complicated about Ha’Penny, but she should not be attempted without at least a modicum of prior boatbuildirig experience. Ha’Penny is a V-bottom boat having the following approximate dimensions: Length Over All: 18 ft., 0 in.; Length on Water Line: 16 ft., 11 in.; Beam: 5 ft., 7 in.; Draft of Hull in Loaded Condition: 8 in.
