Plans of the Colleen

The Colleen has a waterline length of 17 ft, and a beam of 6 ft 6 ins. The overall length was intended to be 20 ft but was changed to 22 ft to give a raking transom. A keel/centreboard, clinker-built boat she had 5 cwt in her keel, and a mainsail of 200 sq ft and jib of 50 sq ft.

The centreplate is similar to that of James Doyle's Water Wag design of 1899.

The original design had a pivoting rudder, but other options were later sanctioned by the DBSC committee.
