Beg-Meil is a traditional day-boat, gaff sloop rigged, just like many that existed in the old days. It is elegant and seaworthy with its half-deck and varnished wood coamings. A steel pivoting centreboard (40 kg) provides stability and performance. She could be used as a day boat, in the style of old dinghies. You can sail alone, or with a crew of 3 and even 4. She is planked over plywood bulkheads, either with wooden strips or marine plywood lapstrakes. The lapstrake or clinker-built version is easier to build.
