Fisher Swampscott 12'
Plans
$120 England & EU
$102 USA/Elsewhere 

This is the first of a new line of dinghies and dories which combine traditional looks and performance with quick and easy methods of construction. We have been able to modify the normal clinker plank shapes for this boat so that they can be stitched together and finished with epoxy/tape seams. This produces a design that can be made without any building moulds and which has frames in it’s construction.

The Fisher Swampscott 12, which, at a length of 12’ and beam of 4’2’’ and with 9mm bottom and garboard planks, is just 66 lbs. in weight and takes only 30 hours to build (including all marking out). She takes just 2 sheets of 9mm and 2 sheets of 6mm exterior or marine ply plus a few lengths of Douglas Fir. Because of her light weight, she can be easily car topped and her simple sprit rig is ideal for family sailing. Other rigs can be supplied. Details are also given for a slightly wider beam version with a wider transom.
