The lines for these plans came from a 100-year-old builders'
model. This is a clipper version of a working Trap Skiff with
lapstrake planking and steamed frames, making her ideally suited to
recreational use without compromising her seakeeping abilities.
The largest of the wherries, with her balanced ketch rig she is a superb sailer (plan for the alternate sloop rig is included). She can be built simply and left open, or fancy with teak deck and oval cockpit. She is one of the loveliest small craft ever designed.
Hilmark Boats is pleased to offer the Newfoundland Trap Skiff.
