This design is based on a double ended version of our 12' 4" Petite Brise
Swampscott dinghy - http://www.selway-fisher.com/Other1013.htm#PETITE
Swampscotts as a breed usually have a
narrow 'tombstone' transom making them more or less double ended (semi
Swampscott dorys have a wider transom) - when they end up with a true
'sharp' aft end, they become 'surf' dorys
She can be constructed in stitch and tape
or, using the building jog details given, in clinker/ply.
The Plover can be built as a pure rowing
boat or with the rig - details for a daggerboard are shown but there is
also room for a centreboard. She is a jaunty and attractive little boat
that can take 2 or 3 sailing and 3 or 4 rowing.
