Based on traditional crabbing skiff documentation by Howard Chapelle, this has proven to be a fast and stable boat that can carry a real load. While primarily a sailing skiff, she is reasonably handy under oars and easily driven with a tiny outboard. She also display good manners when towed.
As Mike O'Brien said in his WoodenBoat design review, "Doug Hylan has drawn a striking skiff that looks sharp in any company." Plans are on four sheets: Lines and offsets, construction, leg o' mutton sail plan and sprit sail plan.
Traditional detailing is combined with easy maintenance and simple plywood construction.
