Lingcod Series

Freeboard Variations
Freeboard Variations

 

Any Lingcod series boat is, at its core, a large and fast skiff. It maximizes volume in a rugged hull design that balances performance and ride comfort with versatility. It’s also a larger extension of a venerable line of the Cackler boats. Most importantly, every one of the Lingcod designs is a platform for whole range of uses. In their standard center console form, the Lingcods are workhorses, just as useful as a pickup truck when it comes to hauling loads, going fishing and hunting, or taking supplies out to remote locations. But that’s just the beginning. Start with a dependable high volume hull, and make it whatever you want. Change the seating layout, put a pilothouse on it, or at the extreme, turn it into a compact houseboat, a tiny house on the water, a mobile vacation getaway. The study plans include well designed houseboat conversion concepts just to get you started. Although the Lingcods are rooted in proven Devlin designs, they are a blank canvas waiting for you to paint your perfect boat.

The Lingcod is available in study and full construction plans in 3 sizes:

Lingcod 21 ( aka Little Cod)

Little Cod 21

The Little Cod 21 is a larger version of our popular Cackler line of boats that we already have in 14, 16, 18 ft. versions. This is not just simply a blown-up larger boat though it was born of original thought on what would work as a large and fast skiff, one that could be beached if needed and one that could be trailered to the head of its many adventures.

These Garvey type boats (bow transom, Vee bottomed) make for a really good and rugged skiff. With so much volume forward, the boat can be nosed into the shoreline and the skipper and friends can safely and securely walk off the bow. There are good and sturdy centerline keel and bilge keels that keep the boat off the bottom in a beaching or grounding situation and with a 100-150hp outboard, the Little Cod will run at over 40 mph, depending on the load, with good safety and fuel economy.

A center console rounds out this design but you could work out many different arrangements for passenger seating or even fit a removable small cabin on her like the Honker design. A concept drawing for a Little Cod 21 houseboat is included in the study plans. With enough interest or a build commission, we could definitely flesh out the remainder of the houseboat’s plans. – Sam Devlin

Pelicano 23

Like the Pelicano 18, the larger Pelicano 23 comes in three distinct configurations. Bassboat, Center Console, and Shrimper.

Pelicano23-3way

In every case, the Pelicano 23 offers the unique combination of real world durability mixed with the classic Devlin style. Every configuration presents a very practical boat for a wide range of needs. The Bassboat and Shrimper both feature good berth space for overnight adventures; the shrimper adds a sheltered helm for operating in harsher conditions. There is ample dry storage below the deck. The Center Console version provides open space for wrestling those big fish and hauling bulky gear.

No matter your needs in a mid-sized speedboat, the Pelicano 23 delivers a strong, durable, and versatile answer.

For more information, read Sam’s design notes.

The Pelicano 23 is available in study and construction plans for all configurations,

and as a CNC cut kit for the Shrimper.

Pelicano 23 Design Notes

Here we have a 23 ft. outboard powered boat with three distinct different configurations to choose from and great capability of running in a broad variety of waters. She stays conveniently trailerable, runs at good speeds (dependent on horsepower chosen), and even has the option of providing cabin warmth and comfort for cruising in two of the versions.  All this describes the new Candlefish 23 model and she offers much utility and usability to the boater.

She is built with our Stitch and Glue method of construction and sets up 8 athwart ships bulkheads interconnecting with two longitudinal bulkheads for the basic framework.  Hull panels are scarfed to length from 8ft. long panels cut to each of their specific shapes and are stitched over the mandrel of the bulkheads into final hull shape.  Her bottom has the strength addition of another layer of ¼” marine plywood laminated onto her ½” or 12mm initial bottom skin and the resulting laminate of ¾” or 18mm thickness is strong and light.  The hull is then sheathed with two layers of cloth set in epoxy resin and after painting the hull and mounting the hardware, you are ready for the water.  Of the three models we are offering, you can choose from an “Center Console” version with totally open cockpit, or the lovely “Bassboat” with good seating in the cockpit and a cabin for sleeping overnight and staying comfortable on longer trips, or our “Shrimper” model with covered helm area and large cockpit for fishing fun!

If you are so inclined, the plans for home construction are offered for $225 dollars a package for each of the models individually or if you want all three versions of the plans, that’s over 32 individual sheets of drawings for the price of $399.  The choice is yours, either our venerable old feet and inches ‘Imperial’ measurement plans or choose in ‘Metric’ measurement.  Basic hull kits will be offered for any of these models also, CNC cut and including a building jig to assemble her on, and shipped on 4×8 pallets regular truck freight to just about any place in North America – just call us for pricing.

So here she is, the newest to our lineup, the Pelicano 23, and with about $5,500 dollars in materials (not counting the outboard engine) and 700-900 hours labor, you can dream up your own adventures while building her.  – Sam Devlin
