Re: SOmething Else Interesting out at Pat and Kay's Place


That's a half-model of a Chesapeake Bay skipjack. Low chine, cross-planked bottom, a big chunk of carved wood for the forefoot. A good teaching tool for showing how they're built -- if you can get it into the classroom. ;o)

Pat's boat is a high-chined "northern skipjack" that would have had a longitudinally planked bottom if it hadn't been planked with plywood. Let's hope it looks better than that Chesapeake skipjack when the tarps come off. <g>

A better link to the photo of the half-model:
