Kits + Plans in Development
An enlarged version of the already popular CIY 16, this will offer great capacity and more sail area. The rig will likely stay as a lug-yawl. The CIY 18 will represent the top end of the sail-and-oar spectrum, as far as size of boat is concerned. There is another boat that could come from this, more of a daysailor, with a deck and coamings and perhaps a sloop rig.
This is an outboard skiff designed to teach as much as it is to be a great platform for picnics and fishing or just planing around. The side planks on this boat will use the tab-n-lock construction method, but the final step will be a sheerstrake that laps over the side plank...a good intro to the concept of glued-lapstrake construction.
