I designed SparHawk for a couple in Connecticut.
SparHawk‘s design was influenced by the only boat I ever built I hadn’t designed, Ian Oughtred’s MacGregor. SparHawk, a Sailing Canoe, shares the rig and leeboard attached to a lanyard Oughtred uses on his boats. SparHawk is glued lapstrake with a plywood deck.
It was grand enjoying the long weekend together with two fine early clients of mine and their boats.
SparHawk now lives in Rhode Island:
LBP 15′ – 11″
LWL 15′ – 0″
Beam 2′ – 9″
Draft 0′ – 6″
Main 60 sq. ft.
Mizzen 17 sq. ft.
Total 77 sq. ft.
