The cradle boat Baby Tender II is an adaptation of a classic type of boat known as a flattie skiff. It was used for centuries in Europe before being brought to America where it became one of the most popular small craft ever developed. Baby Tender II has classic lines and salty traditional looks but is easier, quicker and less expensive to build than Baby Tender.
The boat has a length of 46”, a beam of 22” and a midship depth of 8.5”. Construction is traditional lapstrake; 3 planks per side, copper riveted and traditional cross-planked bottom. Plans include full-size patterns for planks, building molds, backbone assembly, transom, davits and rockers.
Includes Baby Tender II plans, patterns, instructions, and US shipping.
