Mini-Brig Project: Design Overview

Mini-Brig Design Overview

The Brigantine is 7'10" LOW, and features two masts. It generally operated by a captain and a gunnery crew. It is loosely based on the Mertens-Goosens D4 free plan and the Sabot/Optimist Pram type of boat, and is assembled using "stitch & glue" construction.
