by Edward Weber

After publication of the plans for the 10-foot Kingfisher Class sailing canoe, quite a number of persons interested in small sailboats expressed a desire for a slightly larger boat; one that was a bit more substantial and able, could accommodate more than one person, and yet, making use of the same light, inexpensive, and easy-to-build method of construction. This design, then, is a blending of the best qualities of three different types of boats: the canvas-covered construction of the light sailing canoe, the hull form (slightly modified) of the larger canoes, and the modern rig of the small sloop or knockabout. Not one of these types is untried or unhandy.
