Duck Punt

West Mersea Duck Punt

When John Milgate passed away, before passing he gave permission for his “West Mersea Duckpunt” plans to be freely distributed.

The Duck Punt is a sailboat just shy of 16′ that you lie down in and sail with your feet kicked over the side in water as shallow as a few inches. No keel, no daggerboard, no leeboard, just a hard chine and a canoe paddle for steering and lateral resistance. Pure, simple, and fun! The boat uses an Optimist rig which is a basic spritsail with surprising performance, especially in light air which is the limitation in a boat of this design.
