Melonseed Skiff, 2016

I built this boat in 2016 using plans purchased from Wooden Boat Magazine.

  • Built of 1/4 marine plywood,
  • lapstrake construction, all bronze fasteners, epoxy glue, fiberglassed bottom.

    Boat has the following dimensions;

  • length 13'4",
  • beam 4'2",
  • draft 3" board up,
  • 2'4" down,
  • approximate weight 150 lbs.

    It has a 65 sq ft Sailrite sail, which is designed to be brailed but hoops around the mast also allow one to drop the sail to the deck.

  • It has a comma-shaped dagger board set forward of the cockpit.
  • Drain empties into dagger board case.
  • Rudder slides up when grounded.

    This boat has room for two, is easy but fun to sail.

  • Oars and trailer included.
  • Trailer is from Harbor Freight with goal posts, winch, and tongue jack.
  • Lights on top of goal posts never get wet.
  • Tahlequah, OK, 70 miles east of Tulsa.
