The Stradivari 2.4mR Hc is intended as an easy to build lowbudget entry boat for the class, still competetive on the race course.

More pictures from the build here.

It has the same measured length as the Norlin Mk III in order to be able to fit it out  with used sails, spars and fittings from old/scrapped boats.

Using 4mm cheap and light asian plywood like Lauan sheated with 160gr/m2 cloth and epoxy
makes for a light, stiff, enduring and cheap hull/deck.

There's a number of different ways to build the keel.
Temporary keel and ruddermoulds can be made of hot wire cut foam. Another way to fix a keel would be to take moulds off from another 2,4.
On the first boat I will use the old keel mould from the original Norlin Mk III.
My estimate is that you should be able to build a boat for about 1/4-1/3 of what you pay for a new boat.

Making a joint effort together with your mates and build a couple of boats in your club, can be a very enjoyable and rewarding experience.
The plans are now available for purchase priced very favourable at
1000 EUR per boat built to the plans.

I will also be available via mail to guide you through the process and share experiences.

What's with the rectangular stern and super flat run?  Aesthetically, its a severe challenge that detracts significantly from the "row away factor", regardless of how easy it makes the build...

 

I know, not too many folks row away from their 2.4m :rolleyes:

Looks like a fun project - gotta love the stitch and glue technique. I like the look of the transom, wanted to see a plumb bow to match. My question: Is it really less expensive than finding an older 2.4m and undergoing a full refit / rebuild?

I love the look of that 2.4, chines!! I agree, a plumb bow would be killer!

 

Has anyone ever made a sit in 2.4 style Classic J before? Oh sweet overhangs!

Stradvari, you should learn how to format your posts so they are... I don't know... readable?

Hopefully your boats have a little more attention to detail...

If you are pimping your plans (at EUR 1000 per boat) buy a fucking add you cheapskate.  I think your pricing scheme is going to be your biggest downfall
