Description:

The traditional lapstrake look of her hull, belies Lapwing's thoroughly modern performance.

The construction uses glued (epoxied) plywood strakes built over a jig. Unlike traditional lapstrake construction, there are no frames, so the interior of the hull is clean. She has 8 strakes per side, giving her a nice round-bilged hull form.
