a design proposal by Phil
The name of the boat is 'sterne'
(which is the French name of a seabird). She is based on a drawing
Gavin published some time ago. I extrapolated a little cruiser
from this drawing. It is basically a caravelle-like hull extended
to fit the needs of daysailing with a little shelter to prevent
from being soaked when rain comes, or to have a nice nap while
the friends are angling ;-)
She is 14,75 feet long x 5.90
feet wide with a wl at 9.87
inches from the keel. It's only a design proposal for the moment.
I published the drawings in the yahoo
boatdesign group to gather observations and refine the concept,
but if I have demands, I'd be glad to release plans for those
who'd like to build her.

Here are two modified drawings done
taking account the first comments I have had.
