Wooden ships comments on this Ian Oughtred puffin dinghy

Very pretty Iain Oughtred Puffin dinghy designed by Iain Oughtred Puffin dinghythe prolific Oughtred who was responsible for so many successful small boats.  A very sweet sheer line with a shape that gives good buoyancy right along her length.  This means she rides the seas well and is stable and dry.

White gloss exterior to the hull with varnished internal hull planking and fittings.

Lightweight, strong and in as new condition, the construction means she won’t dry and leak as is common with clinker dinghies.  Gorgeous little boat at half the build cost.  Able to be lifted by two people she will travel on the roof rack of an estate car very comfortably.

Designer:

Iain Oughtred

Builder:

Jordan boats, Fife

Year:

2005

Construction:

Clinker planked using marine plywood all epoxy glued.   Oak backbone with oak stem, grown floors and knees.  The strength of the plywood/epoxy combination means she does not require timbers.

Varnished mahogany transom.  Douglas fir thwarts with copper rivet fastened oak knees

Mahogany capping rail encapsulating the sheerstrake.

Douglas fir sole boards.

Nice bronze fittings including rowlocks and holders, cleats, fairleads and rudder pintles.

 

Rig:

Gunter rig with Douglas fir mast and yard.

Tan terylene sail in as new condition.

The rig has been cleverly altered as various teething problems occurred after being commissioned.  Nicely leathered as required and the correct sheet leads make it an easy to use rig.

SOLD
