The Linach 15 two-part nesting dinghy does it all – rowing, sailing, and fishing – and can fit in the back of a pickup or minivan or SUV that can handle 4 x 8 plywood sheets. Starting today we offer the full construction plans as well as continuing to offer the study plans.
What is it? Get ready to welcome a solar electric ‘Shanty’ boat type with low horsepower that is beachable, has full headroom, a large head, and opening windows. Available today – a one page study plan with an accommodation view, an exterior profile, and a stern/bow view.
Many of our small boat designs were originally done for the Duck Hunting market but these are very capable boats and have much versatility in crossover applications like fishing, exploring, or skiffs.
If there were a best all around boat Oscar category, then the Cackler-type boats (like Snow Goose 16) would be nominated year after year. Now you can purchase the newly revised Study and Construction Plans featuring the addition of a removeable Pilothouse.
Sam is always adding new kits to the mix. The above 4 kits are the latest ones he’s created. Just contact Sam if building a Devlin Boat is on your wish list.!
The 45 foot Widgeon is a Devlin Sockeye 45 design that required 13,000 hours of hand crafted labor on the part of a team skilled boatbuilders. She is now available for sale and ready for your viewing pleasure. The sockeye designs provide seaworthy cruising and a wonderful home on the water. They are known for luxury wood interiors and quiet and smooth John Deere diesel propulsion. Click on the photo above for more photos and detailed information.
The MugWump 22 is a pocket cruiser design that does it all in a small trailerable package that can be towed by a 1/2 ton pickup or mid-sized SUV. We’ve just added 8 full color 3-D renderings to both the downloadable construction and study plans.
After several years of Sam’s articles appearing in PassageMaker Magazine, he has penned and illustrated a final one as he takes a break from this form of communicating about his life long passion for all things boating.
