DAYBOAT DESIGNS & PLANS
SKYLARKS

 

Study Plans are available for these designs - remember a study plan gives you more details and a wood materials list usually on two A1 sheets, so that you can cost out a project before ordering the full plans. When you order the full construction plans you do not need to order the study plan as well, as all the study details are on the full plans.

There are 3 designs all based upon the Skylark 16 - also see the Goshawk which is based upon the Skylark 16 and can be found in the Pocket Cruisers & Trailer Sailers page :-

SKYLARK 16 mk2  


This version of the Skylark class of pram dinghies was at the request of a client who wanted a comfortable river boat with the simplicity of construction of the smaller Skylark stitch and tape dinghies and with the large size that a pram shape of this length can afford. The original was for use on the great canal system of the Eastern seaboard of the USA. The drawings show a simple closed cubby/cabin. The outboard is in a well and there is plenty of stowage space for fishing and camping gear. Depending on how you fit her out, construction is based upon 8 sheets of 3/8 (9mm) ply and all the hull panel shapes are given on the drawings. LOA 156; Beam 6: Draft approx. 10 and approx. wht. 350 lbs.

The plans include a Mark 2 version of the Skylark 16 with gaff yawl rig and bowsprit.

Right, an example by Bill Caswell.
