A sample of Paul’s impressive detailed plans of the 10ft double ended skiff from Practical Boatbuilding

Paul O’Connor has been kind enough to send me a set of the plans he created before building his model of the 10ft double ended skiff from the book Practical Boatbuilding for Amateurs. The model has been a step along the route to building the real thing in epoxy ply, and because this is an attractive craft and and interesting challenge, I’m sure other readers will be interested in making their own models from the drawings.

I’ve divided the drawings, which are in pdf form, between two zips:

10ft skiff drawings folder 1

10ft skiff drawings folder 2

As I’ve pointed out before, there’s quite a lot of online background to this project. The original drawings and information from Practical Boatbuilding  are here, an earlier post on the model project is here and two threads discussing the Practical Boatbuilding skiff and Paul’s project are here and here.

Here’s a view of Paul’s three-dimensional model of the skiff:
