Excerpts from Doug Hylan’s design notes:
“I know that many people are going to want to put a motor on OONAGH, so she is designed for it. The tucked-up transom that makes for decent rowing will preclude planing, so there is no point in putting anything more than 2 horsepower back there. In fact, one horsepower is as much as she can really use effectively. This begs the question – why not electric? Why not indeed! A small electric motor will push her along nicely, and you will be able to carry on a private conversation while enjoying the scenery.”
“Beyond use as a tender, OONAGH will make a fine boat for family sailing, fishing trips, or just an evening row with the kids. Her simple construction and detailed plans will make for a good family construction project as well. I can guarantee that the experience of building, then using, a small boat will be a treasure that your kids and/or grandkids will carry with them throughout life.”
