Catalogue excerpts

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) improves stability and gives excellent windward abilities. Hull shapes are the same as Ilur. Ilur is a reference sail and oars boat, with nearly 1000 plans already sold. She could be used as a day boat, in the style of old dinghies. You can sail single handed, or with a crew of 3 Of course Beg-Meil is a trailerable boat. She does not need a permanent mooring, allowing to sail in very different areas. She is easy to launch and recover, even for a single Beg-Meil is rigged as a gaff sloop. If she remains moored during summer season, you may fit a roller furling system for the jib. It is possible to hang a tender type outboard to the transom. Purists may have on board a pair of oars, used for rowing as well as sculling. They may be stowed She is planked over plywood bulkheads, either with wooden strips or marine plywood lapstrakes. The lapstrake or clinker-built version is easier to build, in particular when using a NC cut plywood kit. Optional full size patterns may be purchase for both versions. They give the shape of stem and transom (with bevels), bulkheads, and many other parts. They give also the strakes profile for the clinker version, requiring only Beg-Meil builders and kits suppliers: France: Icarai: Centre d'activités, 4 avenue Louis Lumière e-mail : nvivier(S)icarai.fr - Internet : www.icarai.fr USA: Clint Chase Boat Builder: Portland, Maine - phone: 1 207.879.7782 E-mail : francois@vivier.info - www.francois.vivier.info François Vivier Architecte Naval - SARL au capital de 8 000 € - Siren : 451 456 669 RCS Saint Nazaire
