Twixt is Piccup
Squared with a warped V entry bow.
After using Piccup
Squared for a few years, I redid the bow
into a warped V entry and called it Twixt. The bow bottom
is slit on centerline and twisted on each side about 30
degrees. It's a common shape among aluminum johnboats
and William Jackson did a lot of plywood designs like
this decades ago in popular magazines His boats were built
cut-and-fit fashion over a backbone form and Twixt uses
jigless precut panel construction.
Twixt is quieter and has
more refined motion. But it's not as good as Piccup in
rough water. It's Twixt!
Same overall layout as
Piccup and Piccup Squared and same exact 68 square foot
lug rig with pivoting rudder and leeboard. But there's
also an optional lateen shown.
Same bill of materials
as the Squared, more or less, needing 4 sheets of 1/4"
plywood. No Jigs, no lofting. Three blueprint sheets.
