How To Build a 22 ft SouthWind Sail Boat Plans

THERE is sometimes a need for a sea worthy, small sailing boat of very shallow draft. The "Southwind" was designed to fill this need at relatively low cost and with little labor. The old round sided sailing dories of New England, and the Sea bright Skiffs of New Jersey prove that the flat bottom may be combined with rounded topsides to make a seaworthy small boat. However these are usually rather narrow on the bottom and thus can carry only a small area of sail, so to make "Southwind" faster in summer weather her bottom was made wider and approaches the sharpie in proportion. She can be built with or without a cuddy, as indicated in the plans. In so small a boat a cuddy must be very cramped and provides overnight accommodations of pup-tent standards.


These plans were scanned from an old magazine and converted to a convenient downloadable digital PDF file format.
