Paul Gartside Dingy Riff

Length 12 ft 3 in Beam 5 ft 7 in
Draft (board down) 3 ft 0 in Weight 250 lbs
Sail area 80 sq ft

Paul Gartside's strip planked dingy design Riff is maybe a bit complex for the average home builder, but those who persevere will find they have an exceptional daysailer that can handle a wide range of sailing conditions.
Hal Colvin's Riff , shown here, is a beautiful example of the design built by the designer. DoryMan has seen this boat in action. She has a fine pedigree and I'm sure Hal is proud of his nimble vessel.
