A couple of ways one could go… At www.campionboats.co.uk the 11’ “Iota” looks good. Click the link ‘Sail-Chapelle’ to find her. The designer builder sells the ‘glass’ hull that one can finish. This is a husky, buoyant little vessel with good initial stability. The other suggestion is the plywood 9’6” Joel White “Nutshell” pram. Again, a husky small vessel capable of speed under sail and oars with even better initial stability. Plans can be purchased from WoodenBoat Magazine. As to the Chinese Sail Rig, not sure of any that have been designed to go with very small boats...
