Here’s a set of free plans for an instant classic that’s just the thing to be seen in next summer. Yes, I know it’s made of that terrible ‘laminated wood’ that traditional boat enthusiasts profess to hate (even if they do use it for decking), and I know it isn’t a boat type that’s native to the UK, but if you’ve read Captain’s Courageous by Rudyard Kipling you might well see something good in it.

Paul Vandenbosch’s South Haven Dory is a great boat with elegant looks, goes like a train under oars and builds in almost no time. And I swear it’ll turn heads in any harbour or river around the UK. Cheap, but a classic for the connoisseur nevertheless…
