TYJ sailing off the Maine Coast

Extended coastal cruising in coastal waters is comfortable in the Seaclipper 24 design. It is available in two versions, Daysailer (with cuddy cabin) or Micro Cruiser (with full cabin). Simple ¼″ plywood construction with epoxy adhesives is standard. Flat beam, swing-wing akas reduce the 16′ beam to trailerable width. The hull is light-enough to be towed behind a pickup truck. Used Hobie Cat 18, or other appropriate-sized rigging will reduce cost. Expect to spend about about 6 to 8 months part-time effort to complete. These photographs are courtesy of Lenny Hurrell.
