WATER CRAFT No 84: November/December 2010 c on t e n t s FreePlans

49Reviews The boatbuilding season is here again. We review Saba sealants, Axminster's wetstone grinder and Bosch's neighbour-friendly power planer.

Clearly it's the Paul Gartside Special Issue! Above: Paul sends (very) full plans for this double ended family dayboat – see page 22 – and below Ben Harris builds this classically proportioned 30' (9m) Paul Gartside cruising yacht from scratch – see page 28..

8 The Gribble The men who stare at boats

9 Opinion Long live traditional methods, says Mike Lowson of Northboats.

10The English Raid The new 'cruise in company' for dayboats on the Solent attracted twice the expected entries, reports Kathy Mansfield

14Hooked on Raiding First-timers all, the crew of the Kite now want to do it all over again.

18Kite Just Flies! Seems like Andrew Wolstenholme's new family daysailer has taken to raiding too. Kathy Mansfield joined the crew.

22Build Your Own Gaff-Rigged Sloop Paul Gartside presents full plans and offsets for an eye-catching traditionally-built dayboat.

28Building a Gartside

Gaff-Rigged Yacht Another elegant Paul Gartside design, another traditional build... Ben Harris starts from scratch, converting Scottish larch into planking and a building shed in west Cornwall. . 36Round Pegs in Round holes At the Boat Building Academy, Nigel Sabin built a traditional clinker dinghy using treenails – trunnels – throughout.

40Gunnels & Trunnels You wait ages for a trunnel article and then two come along... Topher Dawson uses them to build easydraining open gunwales on a St Ayles Skiff.

44Pedals & Paddles Like the swan of the Avon, Tim O'Connor might look serene on top but underwater he is paddling briskly – with a new Hobie Mirage Drive in his clinker-ply canoe.

52Grand Designs French designer Francois Vivier works with American boatbuilder Clinton Chase to create the Jewell family-friendly daysailer and Paul Fisher takes inspiration from American designer B B Crowninshield for his elegant Safe Harbour keelboat.

56Design Your Own Motor Boat What's ahead? Ian Nicolson likes to put the skipper on a pedestal.

58Join The Club Dinghy cruising, gaffer sailing, electric boating, steam boating... There's a club for you.
