I don't think they do. In a boat that travels as fast as a 12 footer why would you want them? Just creates more interesting ways of breaking yourself than you had before.

I think it may be more difficult to convert a 12ft skiff to UK Cherub
rules than to beef up a cherub to take a 12 rig.


Converting a non retracting pole to retracting wont be easy plus
possably needing to add some chines




Very Ture... but possiable. :-)

Bit of filler up near the shear line for a chine and an off-centre pole and bob's your uncle...as long as you don't mind still having a bag kite putting a chute or sock in would be rather more drastic surgery I guess.

But the worst thing would be the lack of the false floor and not being self draining...

No Mate,

Thats just how Aussie Skiffs sail.  Don't need hydrofoils atleast downwind.

British crewed and maybe built?????  But Aussie 18

The only true Aussie skiffs left are the 12, 16 and 18.

14 footer amalgamated with the International 14s a long time ago and tightened up the restrictions.

16s and 18s are very strick designs now, leaving the 12 as the only true development skiff.
