Stornoway 9 is the first of a new class of dinghies which incorporate firm
bilges and moderately full transoms needed to carry loads safely and to give
good sailing qualities without dragging a large transom through the water.
The plank shapes have been computer
generated for simple stitch and epoxy construction and to make her eye sweet,
she has 5 planks per side in addition to a narrow hog plank which greatly
simplifies construction. She uses 3 sheets of 6mm ply for her hull and the sail
rig can be added later. The bow shape can be
modified to suit but a traditional stem shape is shown on the drawings.
