Specs builder: jack holt designer: jack holt keel: centerboard dimensions length on deck: 14 ft 0 in engines engine 1: engine/fuel type: other full specification the merlin sailing dinghy was first developed by jack holt in 1946, later merging with the rocket to become the modern merlin rocket with a over 3000 boats built and a keen race following. The design concept limited only length and beam thus allowing a very flexible development of the class resulting in the latest design with extreme beam - trapezes not allowed - so different from the first boats. This is sail no 8 so a very early example. Length 14' weight 98kg clinker planked mahogany with 9 planks per side, copper nails and roves to delicate steamed oak timbers and built like a piece of furniture. Ply fore deck with spray breaker, mast stepped on the deck behind the spray breaker. Roll round ply side decks. Wide aft deck. Ply centre-board in a mahogany box. Re-rigged recently with collars spruce mast and boom, new sails at the same time. Stainless steel sheet horse. Stainless steel rigging. Boom-up cover. A superb example of the boat builder's art as well as being a very good early example of the class. These are performance boats, exciting to sail, easy to tow, quick to rig. Surely not just a sailing dinghy, this is sailing heritage.
