Hi Robert,

I tried, but unfortunately it will not let me copy the pics (sshhh... to tell the truth I am not the most computer competent person on this board!!). Not sure why, really.

Oh well... great pics though... and thank you for sharing.

Thatís neat. I put them there and it doesnít let me copy them either. I guess anybody that wants to see a great boat needs to use the link and check it out for themselves.
All the best,

Robert,

That's a beautiful sailing skiff, and nicely built too. Clearly a much higher level of expertise in that build than in ours. The stern is unusual, I imagine there is an explanation?

CruisingDad,

Thank you for the compliments. As I said in the Boatworks article, with a well executed kit even amateurs like us can get good results.

We sail the Chesapeake, and take the pram along with us when we head back "home" to Massachusetts for summer vacation.

I've considered doing this but never got past the dreaming stage. I was taken with the Selway Fisher designs, especially the Cobles and the Stornoways. Some plans are produced as kits by other companies, such as this Stornoway by Fyne Boat Kits. Someday.....

As the Hartley motto says: "Classic not Plastic"!! ...but maybe I'm biased.

I've never built my own boat - spent many hours helping one of my brothers build one - and a lot of time on maintaining wooden boats. Something that I would like to accomplish one day. This site may have some boats of interest. They can also cut kits from many other plans for you.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I built two boats back in my teen yrs from Glen-L marine. Neaghbor built to pygmy kayaks out of port townsend, Wa.

It can be afun project from the kid standpoint, being as I did this with step dad, while he built the 21CB model.

John,
Donít sell your crew short. Your pictures show an excellent boat built with great skill.

The stern on Clare is easy to explain. The long answer is I wanted the rudder far back to counter the very large sailplan and make up for the light weight of the crew (young kids) but didnít want the added weight that comes with full freeboard and the modern width aft. The short answer is we are a museum of maritime technology and its easer to fund projects that have some origin in history. The hull and rig on Clare is based on a Sharpie from around 1850 or so. The large rig was a common thing in commercial boats in times past. They would have a winter rig and summer rig. We used what would be the larger summer rig when we launched the boat. The winter rig has much less sail area and a shorter mast. With the summer rig in place she is a blast to sail. If you were only sailing with young kids on board then the winter rig would be a better choice.
All the best,
Robert Gainer
