Using just 4 sheets of 1/4" ply,
the 12' Highlander is a lot of boat for it's material cost,
and with it's wide side benches and an easily handled sprit
rig, it is an ideal dinghy to teach children to sail or
to simply potter about in. With buoyancy fitted coastal
dinghy cruising is a definite possibility with this boat.
One of these dinghies has done sterling service as a fishing
boat for a large teenage family and a tender for a yacht's
stores and dog on the West Coast of Scotland. Strip plank
details are available for the Highlander 12'
