    Sorry to toss a wrench into your "works" Tkk. The design above is available in several variations, including a sweet looking round bilge and a clipper bow version too. I think she would be an especially attractive lapstrake build as well. She's available in two drafts and four different rigs, plus another options. Shown are the lines to the round bilge shoal sloop, with a clipper knee.

    Anything is possible and straightening out the rudder rake so the shaft comes up through the keel wouldn't be a difficult modification. It adds a level of complexity to a small boat that isn't all that necessary, but certainly doable.
