Toon2 1/8th Scale Model Building Log
The Toon2 design is a 15' multichine sailboat, with a beam of 5.5' and weighing 300 pounds. She has a 5.5' long cabin and cockpit of roughly the same length. There is a water tight compartment aft accessible by a deck hatch and some room forward of the cabin and below the deck. The sail rig is a 96 sqft. triangular sprit sail with at 21' mast. The mast is stepped in the cabin and is offset to port which is not uncommon in boats like this and Phillip Bolger had several designs that employed this same design element. The use of a leeboard for lateral resistance keeps the cabin and cockpit open. Plans call for seven sheets of 1/4" plywood and two sheets of 1/2" plywood. Supplemental propulsion would be provided by oars, there is not a motor mount in the plans. Pictured below is the first done Toon2 by John Wolfe.
