This plan was drawn and the first boat built, to test and prove the Compu-Craft Kit Boat principle and methods and all the components, jigs and building aids that were suggested for this NEW APPROACH to Kit Boat building and marketing. This is a WHOLE NEW WAY to not only supply and build Kit Boats for any Do-it-yourself home builder, it is also a method where the professional boat yard can manufacture a line of boats or one-offs WITHOUT the burden of moulds, jigs and templates that cost a fortune in TIME and MATERIALS and are really only the license to enable the builder to do as he wants. THAT IS :- Build A Boat. All the advantages that this system offers the Amateur is also available to the Professional.


C-C 20 Trailer Sailer

The C-C 20 Trailer Sailer "Something Different", is a collection of ideas and features put together each with a purpose that results in quite a different little fun machine. First up the purpose. Well it is not a racing machine although it sails well, this is a FAMILY BOAT Mum and the kids will love the following features:-
(a) It is nice and light so it is easy to launch and retrieve.
(b) It has a comfortable cockpit with direct access over the stern.
(c) It has standing headroom throughout centre of the boat.
(d) There is NO MAST or CENTREBOARD in the middle of the accommodation. (There are twin ballasted c/boards outboard of the galley cupboards)
(e) It has Four bunks and a table can be set up between the quarter berths to form a dinette.
(f) If it rains Four people can rest in the cabin in comfort.
(g) It has room for a proper galley. (Stove one side sink the other)
(h) Access to the fore deck is via the cabin and a deck hatch, so the kids can manage the forward-hand's tasks standing on the bunk, with little risk of a "man overboard".
(i) The rig is extremely simple, the masts are unstayed alloy tubes that telescope from the bottom section that is glassed into the deck. (NO STRUGGLING TO RAISE THE MAST)
(j) Running rigging consists of Two Halyards and Two Sheet Ropes.
(k) If left to dry out on the beach, it will sit upright.
(l) It is easily driven by a small outboard.

NEED I GO ON :- This boat will not know how to create a drama. Construction. This project will just click together in about as many hours as most other methods take days. THAT'S RIGHT it takes only a FRACTION of the time normally expected. The entire frame for the hull and interior is made up of a combination of square and circular alloy tubing fixed together with a range of specially designed (patented) C-C clamps (joiners) that do not rely on welding or gluing. They mechanically grip the tubing and are located by a few pop rivets. NOTHING COULD BE SIMPLER OR QUICKER. If you have read the Compu-Craft Home Page (of course you have) under the headings SPECIAL PROJECTS and Compu-Craft KIT BOATS you would have a fairly good idea how this Kit applies and some of it's advantages. The following under Contents of Kit and Plan Pack will also be helpful. The rig on this boat is simplicity itself, the masts gaffs and booms are tubular aluminum (aluminum) so they are light and easily handled. The sails are balanced Lugsails NO FLOGGING HEADSAILS, yes it could have a conventional sloop rig. There are Two ballasted centreboards that are raised and lowered by a simple tackle. The rudder recommended is of the dagger type that can be partly raised and still maintain control in the shallows.
