Woodwind shown after her stub fin keel was installed. The owner had wanted to experiment with a folding fan centerboard as used in lighter sailing canoes in the 1890’s. It proved problematic and we went back to my original intention for a short fin keel. The boat sits well on her trailer and launches easily. She draws just over 2′.
This design would also make a powerful open or half-decked boat either as a beach cruiser or daysailer.
Here is a sail plan for a proposed 22 foot weekender based on the Beach Point 18.
