This boat has a spacious interior and full standing headroom throughout.

There are two fixed keel options - either the medium draft or the deeper ultimate performance keel may suit you best.

 

Above is shown the drop keel version which is combined with the lifting rudder to allow you access to areas where the water is a bit thin !

If you are looking for a handy Club Racer or a high performance trailerable sailboat then the Roberts 246 could suit you. The detailed plans and full size patterns make this an easy boat to build in either wood epoxy or fiberglass.

 

This illustration shows the male hull mold covered with either thin inexpensive plywood or hard-board followed by the inner fiberglass laminate, next either foam or balsa core and finally the outer layers of fiberglass. Note the area of the keel is not cored but has additional fiberglass laminate to provide maximum strength in this area.

Here we see the construction of the deck and cabin male mold which consists of deck and cabin top frames and battens covered with either thin inexpensive plywood or hard-board followed by the inner fiberglass laminate, either foam or balsa core is then installed and finally the outer layers of fiberglass are laminated in place.
