I have made several modifications from the original Ebihen building plans. A significant change occurred when I had Mr. Vivier redesign the sail plan so that I could dip the mast under a local bridge. The sail plan has changed from a Gaff rigged sloop to a Lug Rigged Sloop. This change will allow for simpler sail management. The main sail has increased slightly in volume while the jib has decreased. A 4 degree mast rack has been added to the plan.
If you are interested in this sail plan please contact Francois Vivier. (Ebihen designer)
The original design calls for a cross seat, rowboat style (thwart), across the centerboard trunk. I have changed the seating to side seats along the gunwale. This required several new seat pillars (knees) to be designed. I did this redesign for personal and practical reasons, desiring better access forward and seating comfort for my sailing guests.
