Digger 17

She’s built over frames or as a taped seam. 11 sheets of 1/2″plywood is all it takes and a 1″ thick bottom makes her feel like a rock underway, not to mention less worry of puncture. There’s a sheer strake option that is a pretty addition (as shown) for little extra effort or she can be slab sided as most work boats are. She’s hefty, but not heavy and this makes for a secure feeling aboard.

PAR: I like the look of your Digger 17. What would be the approx. time in hours and degree of difficulty of this build? I do have some experience with stitch-and-glue construction. Currently finishing (painting) a Bateau GF16.
If you were to compare it to the Old Wharf Lumberyard skiff what would be the main differences in handling? Sorry for all the questions.
