Julian Godwin dinghy

Back in 2005 a cruising yacht from New Zealand came into the marina at Hout Bay, South Africa.

The yachts tender was really different and I asked the owner who had designed it?

The name given was Julian Godwin of New Zealand, I was able to make contact with Julian via a good friend who lives down there and searched out Julian for me.

This brought a letter and a set of plans some weeks later from Julian which gave me permission to use his plans and also create a CNC plywood kit and sell the plans.

Dedication 27 power fishing boat

This is the new design offering from Dudley Dix.

Just released for the sale of plans!

The plans cost U$500 plus postal shipping costs.

At this time Dudley tells me he has the plans ready but not the DFX panel cut files so right now I cannot price the kit.

Please contact me if you would like a kit price when I have it.

St Ayles Skiff storage idea


The Hout Bay YC in South Africa have a new club house on the marina, this is in addition to where the old club house is.

The St Ayles Skiff they buily now has a new home which makes things really easy for launching.

I am told that a second St Ayles Skiff is planed so that they can develop team rowing.

The Eureka Canoe

 We have done the Eureka Canoe which was designed by Mike Storer for some time, either as a plans set only or as plans and a CNC cut plywood kit

The canoe is really a right sized boat for those wanting a car top type boat, you can take a passenger in the Eureka Canoe or just yourself.

Please supply your email address and I will forward you the PDF on this design.
