Ron Breault built this boat to use as a tender to MARIONETTE, hence the name ’TEER. Though he launched her “in the last century” his enthusiasm for ’TEER has not waned and he showed her at the 2009 WoodenBoat Show, where she looked just gorgeous. The 1/4″ lapped strakes are okoume plywood, edge beveled and epoxy glued. Sporting Shaw & Tenney oars with sewn leathers, she has mahogany transoms, seats, floorboards and rail trim. Oak inserts and carrying handles are built into the rail. Though not quite 7′ long, she has two rowing positions, weighs only 42 lbs and has a load capacity of 350 lbs.
