Skylark--A Sea Skiff

  • Availability: In Stock
  • Pub No.: 5350

A 13-ft. sea skiff with an easily-built plywood hull that can be sailed or driven by an air-cooled inboard engine.

Originally developed by fishermen and others who make their living on the water, the sea skiff design is one of the best hull forms for a small boat, It is quite seaworthy for the overall length, exceptionally dry in a chop and even with a full load aboard, is stable and easily driven by oars or a small inboard engine. With a simple inboard rig and dagger board, she’ll balance perfectly and sail like a charm. Most important of all from the builder’s standpoint, is that the construction is simple and because of the plywood planking, presents no difficulties for even the beginner.
