I’m going sailing, so you won’t hear from me for a day or two.
In the meantime, here’s a chapter from an old book describing how to build an old-fashioned British sharpie. Not many people would build a boat like this now, but I think it’s interesting, not least because it could so easily be a predecessor of the GP14.
This chapter includes instructions and plans for the hull and spars; see part II for sailmaking instructions:
