The 20' Skipjack is one of Selway Fisher's latest designs and is based on the small single chine 'V' bottomed fishing boats that developed around Martha's Vineyard and the Gulf of Mexico in the 1880's.
For her length, she has an enormous volume making her ideal as a pocket cruiser.
Go to the Skipjack page in Selway Fisher Design site for details of the full-size boat.
The 2 sheets of plans are for a 1:12 scale static model but notes and guidance are given to ballast her and set the rigging up for a radio controlled working model using the same control systems used on the 4m Mini Yacht.
The plans show sheet Balsa wood construction but she could be made using any sheet material.
The model plans consist of two A1 sheets giving full-size shapes for the frames and fore and aft girder etc plus sail plan and notes on the fitting out of the 4m Mini Yacht to help fit the Skipjack out as a working model.
