21’6 Gil Smith South Bay Catboat – Robert Leach and Daniel Adam-Azikri

The hull of this 21’ 6” Gill Smith designed South-Bay catboat called ‘Lucile’ will be cold moulded and painted to give a traditional carvel built appearance. The hull planking will be glued with epoxy, but temporary clamping will be achieved using plastic staples rather than the metal variety which are usually employed. The plastic staples do not need to be removed; they sand easily and do not corrode.

She will be finished off with a traditional swept wooden deck.
