MOCCASIN

Dave Nelson took three years to build this Cosine Wherry designed by John Hartsock. He stretched the boat out a foot and a half, but kept the 52" the same as called for by Hartsock. Dave also modified the stem and transom shapes and modified the thwarts. He built the boat using strip-planked cedar and added a Honduran mahogany sheerstrake. The thwarts are vertical grain fir. John adds that she sails and rows nicely. John says Priest Lake in Northern Idaho is his favorite place to use MOCCASIN
