14' Thames Skiff
Plans
$136 England & EU
$115 USA/Elsewhere 

This is a 14’ (4.27m) x 4’2” (1.27m) stitch and tape/clinker/ply Thames Skiff – similar to our Thames 12 skiff - for Mr. B. Lammerton - she retains the same “wineglass” type transom and construction is for stitch & tape (as with all our designs, we could draw up the mould shapes and jig details to build her in clinker/ ply) - the drawings also give details for rudder and canopy.

The standard fit-out shows an aft seat with back and a foredeck/seat but this could be changed to suit.

This beautiful clinker example is by Neil Newman and is featured in the Sept/Oct 2010 issue No. 83 of the Watercraft Magazine.

Below is a stitch and tape example by Jed Dale.
