This Ebihen 18 sailing boat designed by Francois Vivier was built at the Boat Building Academy at Lyme by Edward Hoogewerf and Neil Walker with help from other Academy students. My thanks to principal Yvonne Green for the photos.

The 18ft strip planked sailing boat with water ballast is constructed in glass-sheathed Douglas fir, and is to be rigged as a gaff cutter.
