Welcome to Sail ‘n’ Oar
Classic Self Build Small Boat Plans and Patterns
Designed by John Sheen, based in Cowes Isle of Wight in the United Kingdom, these are tried and tested designs based on a lifetime in boat building.
The patterns supplied by Sail’n’Oar are accurately cut to save the builder considerable time and expense. They are not just to assist with making up the framework to build your boat upon, in fact none of that is required. The construction design has been created to minimize the building time. There is no need to scale drawings, make templates and scribe around difficult areas. Simply place the patterns on the wood, mark around and cut out.

Using patterns to mark and cut your wood is far more economical than purchasing a kit boat where you are paying to have shapes cut out that you will easily manage yourself. You will likely save a great deal on the cost of the timber and plywood too.
Download the manual first, and buy the patterns after you have discovered how simple it can be. Patterns are rolled, and securely packed in tubes. They are dispatched via courier to your home or workshop.
