This blog will take you along the different steps of building a 23 foot dropkeel sailboat. The DIDI 23 is one of the available designs for the amateur builder designed by Dudley Dix. The boat is built as a radius chine trailer sailer from plywood with bulb dropkeel.

Starboard hatch coaming glued to deck
The stowages at stern should be accessible from deck. Therefore I opened the deck on starboard and portside and framed the openings with hatch coamings.
