Great article about the Phil Bolger Black Skimmer design.

Adirondack Guideboats

I did not have the time to dedicate to building my first guide boat until the winter of 1981.I had years of experience working with wood but this was unique.
Thanks for a wonderful clear article on the process the builders in Vermont have been very helpful.
