CLC Sail Rig - Chesapeake Light Craft Kayak Sail Rig MK II

I built this sail rig to go with my boat, Hull B.    I built this project strictly from plans, and raw materials.  I also did things a little differently than CLC lays out.  First, I used a different sail plan, with a jib and a mainsail.  I will also changed the way the crossbars (aka's) will be attached to the hull.  Finally I built the floats (ama's) as hybrids, where the hulls were plywood and the decks were strip built.

Length:  12 feet
Beam:  10 feet
Weight: 40 lbs.

Pygmy Wineglass Wherry - Hull #1

I built this Wineglass Wherry for a customer in Port Townsend.  The kit sat in the basement for years until I started building it in May of 2006.  A nameplate, bulkheads with hatches, and a brass cleat on the bow are the custom options I added to this beautiful boat.

  14 feet. 
Beam:  4 feet
