The Haven 12 1/2 is a 16 foot daysailer designed by Joel White. It is based on the Buzzard's Bay Boy's Boat designed by Herreshoff, also known as just the 12 1/2, referring to its waterline length.
I received plans as a birthday gift in 2004. I began lofting in May 2005 and constructing molds in November 2005. I also build the mahogany transom in that timeframe. I purchased most of the white oak in April 2006. Over summer 2006 I faired the molds.
