Introduction: Design Selection

This boat was commissioned by a customer who was looking for a double-ended lapstrake sailboat that could be easily rigged and sailed single-handed, yet be capable of carrying the whole family, too. He considered variations of the Swampscott Dory and Nelson Zimmer's Mackinaw boat but was swayed by the light weight and ease of single-handed sailing that are features of the Caledonia Yawl design.
