15' Hazel Guide Bateau
Plans
$88 England & EU
$75 USA/Elsewhere 

Above a Hazel nicely built by Mike Sanderson.

Based upon the American Adironack guide boat, this craft combines traditional lapstrake (clinker) construction with modern materials. The bottom is a flat piece of 3/8’’ ply slightly rockered fore and aft and the five strakes are of 3/16’’ or 1/4’’ ply. The shape of the boat is derived from pre-shaped and permanent 3/4’’ ply or laminated spruce frames fastened to the bottom ply. The ply topside strakes are then shaped and fastened to the frames. For the slightly more experienced builder, this craft is car top-able and a delight for rowing and fishing. The plan shows lines, offsets and construction. LOA 15’0’’; Beam 4’6’’; Depth amidships 1’2’’. Approximate weight 125 lbs.
