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.
