Lines of the Gloucester Gull
Here is the study plan of the Gloucester Gull, aka the Light Dory. The scans are from the old Texas Dory Boat Plans study sheet, which I sort of had a connection to many years ago, and still have a bunch of study plans. All plans and quotes are used with the permission of PB&F.

Black Skimmer lines
Here are a couple of the drawings for the Black Skimmer. I built one in about 1978. The owner was very happy with the boat, he sailed it for a number of years in Pleasant Bay, Cape Cod. I believe it ended up in Florida, where a guy had several for charter in Florida bay. Great shallow draft cruiser, lots of room in the cabin , and a double bed sized bunk !

For more info read Phil's excellent article on the Black Skimmer in 'The Folding Schooner and Other Adventures in Boat Design", starting on page 60.
