These designs (Auk & Puffin) are based on the classic yacht tender or ship’s boat type, refined for the lighter glued lapstrake plywood construction method. This is a burdensome hull, with full bilges and a bigger transom to make a versatile hull Carrying capacity is good, and she has the power to carry sail, and enough bearing aft to take an outboard motor comfortably.

Dramatic performance is not to be expected from a boat of this type; however, the entry is quite fine and the run easy. The idea has been to achieve a model that will move along nicely and handle easily in all conditions; whether light or loaded, in smooth water or rough; under oars, sail, or outboard.
