ACCOMMODATION Layout is for five using saloon settees and large V-berth forward. The centerboard trunk is incorporated as a drop-leaf table to seat six. Even by modern standards this is an ultralight, high-performance sailboat.
AUXILIARY POWER Plans show inboard 3-cyl Yanmar 3JH5E diesel (35hp cont.).
CONSTRUCTION Cold-molded marine plywood covered with epoxy-impregnated Xynole-polyester or Dynel cloth. Decks, Houses and coachroofs of ply construction incorporating sawn beams. The hull is built around longitudinals and structural bulkheads, greatly simplifying lofting and hull lay-up. All surfaces are developable, allowing full-sheet construction.
PLANS Full construction plans include The Sharpie Book, Construction Notes and Construction Details.
DESIGN By Reuel B. Parker, after Thomas Clapham, based on the 1936 Howard Chapelle tracings, of which I have a copy courtesy of Gordon Hurley.
