Mikey Floyd’s “Salty Heaven”

This 17′ boat is one of several boats I mulled over before building UNA. Floyd really got some beautiful lines set here. She looks so workmanlike.

No laps in the intended clinker construction in this 1/2 hull, but the grace still shines through. Could still be a project down the road. In the meantime I’ve some more wall art.

    Hi. I love the shape of Mikey Floyd’s Salty Heaven and would like the chance to build the boat. If the plans you have are to scale, I guess a fellow could build a boat from them minus some details. Phil Bolger’s Prince William Sound Yawl and Herreshoff’s Coquina share much of the Salty Heaven’s hull shape. What are the chances of getting the Salty Heaven plans?


    1. Charles,
      Mikey has the plans available for free. They were on WoodenBoat Forum.
      Let me know if you proceed. There is a fellow building one now on the west coast.

    1. Thanks Mikey. SH is a boat size that I believe is often overlooked. The half model will keep it in my sights. Kamala is sweet too. Got any other boats on the drawing board?
