PIPPIE 8 SAIL TRAINER
Designed by Mike Waller
The Pippie 8 Sailing Trainer is a 'Nutshell' style sailing dingy designed for 1 or 2 people. Its designed purpose is for sailing one up, as a trainer for children, or as a small 'knock about' dingy for a larger cruising yacht, which can be rowed, sculled, sailed or operated with a small outboard motor.

The Pippie 8 is constructed from plywood using the wood / epoxy method, and tack and tape / stitch and glue construction. It can be constructed by one person from 4 sheets of plywood (3 x 6mm and 1 x 9mm) including centerboard and rudder. The rig is a simple stock alloy tube unstayed mast with a simple loose footed and pocket luff sail.

The Pippie Trainer and the Pippie Tender are basically the same boat. The Trainer can be used as a dingy and the sailing rig and rudder added later. The weight of the dinghy wll vary depending on the type of plywood used, but with medium weight ply should not exceed 60Kg.
