DINGHY DESIGNS & PLANS
FOR ROWING SKIFFS & GIGS

(PLYWOOD - STITCH & TAPE & STRIP PLANK)


We have 17 Rowing Skiff/Gig designs in this section.

Note - In the particulars for each design, the dry weight is given for guidance only and will vary depending on the grade/density of plywood and solid wood used - different thicknesses of ply are often used by builders and the dry weight figure is based on the thinnest ply specified.
Also the Guidance Use comments are given in good faith and are based on feedback from previous builders etc and based on standard weight adults - contact us if you want further clarification before ordering/building.
Please also note that we give the computer faired mould, inner stem and transom shapes plus the building jig details for clinker ply construction where stated and recommend that the builder purchases a good manual on this method of construction to use with these details. E & OE

15' HAZEL GUIDE BATEAU  
Based upon the American Adironack guide boat, this craft combines traditional lapstrake (clinker) construction with modern materials. The bottom is a flat piece of 3/8’’ ply slightly rockered fore and aft and the five strakes are of 3/16’’ or 1/4’’ ply. The shape of the boat is derived from pre-shaped and permanent 3/4’’ ply or laminated spruce frames fastened to the bottom ply. The ply topside strakes are then shaped and fastened to the frames. For the slightly more experienced builder, this craft is car top-able and a delight for rowing and fishing. The plan shows lines, offsets and construction. LOA 15’0’’; Beam 4’6’’; Depth amidships 1’2’’. Approximate weight 125 lbs.

10'9" MEDWAY SKIFF
The Medway 11 is a rowing skiff development of our Medway Doble design. We have retained the same 3 plywood planks per side and the simple stitch and tape method of construction. She uses just 3 sheets of 5 or 6mmplywood. As drawn, she is fitted out for single use with a central rowing thwart and with buoyancy/stowage compartments at either end. These can be replaced by seating so that she could take 3 adults. Her ‘V’ bottomed hull section has a moderate waterline beam keeping the wetted surface area to a minimum making her easy to row and straight tracking. She has a ‘wineglass’ shaped transom giving her some width at deck level with basically a double ended hull form at the waterline. 
This lovely example beautifully fitted out with solid wood seats etc is by Phil Beaumont.
The nice example below is in clinker ply by Angus Marsland - the plans five the mould shapes for this method of construction.

12' THAMES SKIFF

Thames 12 stitched and tapedThames Skiff with rig
The example above had sails added by the owner.
This example is by Neil Warren with his daughter Alicia looking very pleased with her fathers efforts.
This rowing skiff has been lightly modeled on the traditional Thames river skiffs. They were usually a lot longer and around 4' wide. Here, we have produced a design which will delight the rowing enthusiast who wants a light weight skiff with moderately low beam (requiring the use of short outriggers which are detailed on the drawings). She uses the stitch and epoxy method of construction although we can supply the mould shapes for clinker ply construction as well. With 5 planks per side and her wine glass transom and raking bow, she is an elegant form of personal transport. We can supply plank shapes and details for versions with different beams to suit your own requirements. LOD 12' (3.66m); Beam 3'3" (.99m); Depth amidships 13" (.34m); Approx. wht. 60 lbs (27 kg).

14' THAMES SKIFF  

This is a 14’ (4.27m) x 4’2” (1.27m) stitch and tape/clinker/ply Thames Skiff – similar to our Thames 12 skiff - for Mr. B. Lammerton - she retains the same “wineglass” type transom and construction is for stitch & tape (as with all our designs, we could draw up the mould shapes and jig details to build her in clinker/ ply) - the drawings also give details for rudder and canopy.

The standard fit-out shows an aft seat with back and a foredeck/seat but this could be changed to suit.

17' THAMES ROWING SKIFF
I have often been asked to stretch the basic Thames 12 design—using the same beam—to a skiff capable of having 2 rowing positions—we now have this in the 17’ Thames Skiff which has the same attractive 5 planks per side hull shape and using the same simple stitch and tape method of construction.

The plans show both a double and single rowing position so that she can be fitted out either way. She uses 5 to 6 sheets of 4,5 or 6mm ply—if required she could take a small sail rig or use a small electric outboard.

LOA 17’ (5.19m); Hull beam 3’3” (0.99m). Approx. wht. in 4mm ply 77lbs (36kg).

WAIF 12' LIGHTWEIGHT ROWING/SAILING SKIFF

This 12' x 4' rowing/sailing skiff was designed for Mr. M. Goodger who wanted a light, seaworthy skiff which would row well and optionally take a modest 35-50 sq ft sail. The attractive 5-plank hull is therefore based on the Stornoway 9. The drawings show the moulds/jig details for clinker/ply construction and plank shapes and details for stitch and tape construction using 4, 5 or 6mm ply.

Above is an example by Alan Chinn of Ibis Boatworks - in this case a centreboard similar to the Stornoway 12 is being fitted.

20' THAMES SKIFF
The Thames 20 rowing skiff is an elegant and very attractive skiff based upon a craft that we originally designed for a client who wanted a simple personal exercise craft which could be used on open inland waters. Construction uses the stitch and tape process with pre-shaped 4mm ply hull planks. These are marked, cut out and then stitched together along the chine seams with scrap copper wire. The seams are then epoxy filleted and when the epoxy has cured the wire stitches are removed allowing the inside of the seams to be glass taped without any bumps caused by leaving the stitches in place.  The outside of the chine seams is then epoxy filled and cleaned off - so that no tape is used on the outside chines of the hull allowing a beautiful varnished finish to be applied if required. Although we have not done so, so far, we can produce the mould and building jig details for her to be strip planked in Cedar. LOA 20' (6.1m); Hull beam 26 1/2" (0.67m); Approx. weight depending upon materials and fit-out 70 lbs (32kg).

22' HAWKE BAY SKIFF

The Hawke Bay is a large single rowing skiff designed for a New Zealand client who wanted to go on rowing expeditions around the coasts of North & South Islands. She has been given plenty of freeboard and buoyancy to cater with the sharp chop experienced in offshore rowing. There is a sliding seat for comfortable rowing and plenty of room to take enough stores for lengthy trips. Standard construction is for welded aluminium using pre-shaped panels. She can however be made from plywood using stitch and tape methods with epoxy. LOD 21'10" (6.66m); Hull beam 4'11" (1.5m); Approx. hull wht. 300 lbs (135 kg).

27' WEST KERRY GIG
There are some rowing races that take place at West Kerry in Eire using 27' rowing gigs. The races take place in the open sea, in harbours and estuaries where there is often a severe chop. Each gig takes a crew of 4 with an additional member acting as cox. The hull has a fine entry, low waterline beam with well flaired topsides giving a good range of stability and a pretty wineglass transom.  Construction is for strip planking over computer generated mould shapes.

NEW 15' ADIRONDACK GUIDE BOAT
The Adirondack Guide boats were used in the outback of North America in the 19th and early 20th Centuries for hunting, portaging etc and have a very distinctive shape with fairly pinched bow/stern sections and slack bilge shape. Beam was kept low so that they were often rowed with a cross handed. Construction is shown for both simple stitch and tape and clinker/ply construction.

LOA 15’ (4.7m); Beam 3’4 1/2” (2.85m); Midship hull depth 12” (0.3m); Weight approx 70lbs (32kg).

 18' WINDRUSH ROWING SKIFF
This skiff has been drawn up for a client who specifically wanted to develop a design optimised for the “front rower” rowing system (www.frontrower.com) which allows the rower to face forward. For those who do not want to use this system we have included details for the skiff to be fitted out with conventional fixed seat and outriggers—she could also take a sliding seat if required.

Construction is simple stitch and tape using 4 planks per side but we also include the jig and mould details so that she may be built using clinker ply construction.

Construction uses 6 sheets of 4mm plywood.

Below is a modified example of the Windrush by Anthony Walker - this version (the plank shapes for this version are also given in the standard plans) has a little more beam and more hull depth - this is to help make her into a multi-role boat with outriggers, sail rig etc.
