New Leech Paper Tiger

Stu Taylor has just launched his new kitset cnc Leech Paper Tiger. In only his second regatta he finished 4th in the Australian / New Zealand 2018 Interdominions. He said there is still plenty of performance to come from the boat once it is fully tuned up.

The boat is built using a cnc cut female jig and all hull, deck and bulkhead panels are cnc computer cut and the boat is built in a kitset type build system, basically the same concept as the Leech OK dinghy.
