POWER
Plans show optional 2-cyl diesel (15hp). An outboard can be used in an offset well located just aft of station #6, or incorporating a stern bracket.


ACCOMMODATIONS
Layout is for four using saloon settees and large V-berth forward. The centerboard trunk is incorporated as a drop-leaf table to seat four. Interior accommodations are classic and modest. Even by modern standards, this is an ultralight high-performance sailboat.
CONSTRUCTION
Cold-molded plywood/epoxy covered with epoxy-impregnated Xynole-polyester cloth. The hull is planked around longitudinals and structural bulkheads, greatly simplifying lofting and building. Spars are hollow laminated Douglas fir.
COMMENTS
This vessel may incorporate a more modern rig, modified as custom-design work. It is, however, the designer's opinion that the original rig should be employed, utilizing modern materials such as "Oceanus" sail cloth and stainless steel standing rigging, Dacron running rigging, etc. No winches are required. 

DESIGN
By Reuel B. Parker, after Thomas Clapham, based on the 1936 Howard I. Chapelle tracings, of which I have a copy courtesy of Gordon Hurley.
