Jericho Bay Lobster Skiff
- Additional Info
designed by Joel White
Designed by Joel White, the original boat was built plank-on-frame by Jimmy Steele (of Peapod fame), but no plans were ever drawn--until now. Tom Hill and Eric Dow have taken lines off the original boat and Tom built the prototype and has drawn a very detailed set of plans for strip construction, including full-sized mold patterns (so no lofting is required).
Here's a video on how the original was developed including interviews with Aaron Porter and Tom Hill. Plus you'll see this pretty boat in action.
And another getting the hull together by the folks in Saginaw Bay, at the sbcsa.org:
