Built by Jan during our early years of family life and marriage, I think it kept him focused and sane.
She has a Howard Chappelle 21’6” fisherman’s launch hull and a William Garden designed cabin structure. Eighteen hundred hours were spent on her creation; starting with the lofting in 1981. Carvel planked of Western Red Cedar with splined seams over traditional steam-bent oak ribs.

The Scouts have finally finished the boats we started nearly two years ago and wanted to get these photos of the boys taking them out on Beaver Lake earlier this month. It was a perfect evening to go out and the boys really enjoyed themselves. The sense of pride in their faces knowing that they build something that actually floated was great to see.
I would like to thank you again on behalf of the 3rd Douglas Scout Group for your generous donation of material to make this project happen.
We have some talented customers! This is someone’s layup of there next project…

The dreaded miracle moulding has made a comeback as something useful—a drying rack for oiled fir.
This boat is now FOR SALE – Roy is asking $5000, please contact him directly if interested!
Won at a boat in a raffle from Cowichan Maritime Museum last October, this boat has only been in the water once. It’s a beautiful 10 ft Lapstrake Acorn Dinghy with 9 ft Oars. The value placed on the boat by the builder was $8000.00. The owners already store an 18ft Tracker boat and only have a single car garage, so sadly it needs to go.
