Fresh from the Devlin drawing board is the new Oolichan 13. A bigger, faster, and more stable evolution of the Candlefish 13, it can carry more load and a bigger motor. Available as a kit now. This would be a great option for a first time builder with modest shop space who wants a fantastic fishing platform.
It is available in both bridgedeck and open versions.
More details about The Oolichan can be found on the Devlin Catalog, and information about kits can be found here.
Devlin Boat Kits - a great way to build
Devlin Designing Boatbuilders, In collaboration with West Satsop CNC, has brought the Devlin design catalog to independent boatbuilders as a precision cut CNC kit. All of Sam’s construction plans enable you to build from raw materials, but the value of the kit is twofold. First, we source the best materials for your project. Second, the accuracy of CNC cutting ensures that you will have an easy time building your boat straight and true. The kits provide a solid foundation for building your boat the way you want to build it.
Power? Sail? Rowing? Dozens of Devlin designs are available from the catalog menu link.

Oolichan assembly video
Over the years, we've recieved valid and candid feedback that buyers and prospective buyers would like more visual assembly guidance. I love boats as much as the next boater, but building all of the boats in Sam Devlin's catalog would take more money, space and time than anyone could dedicate.
The answer is building scale models. Our new laser cutter makes this practical.
