CLC Skerry


Nøkken - First Messabout

I signed on for the October 2013 CLC/WoodenBoat Skerry class in Annapolis, with my husband, Wes, assisting, had a great week building the Skerry hull under the expert guidance of instructor Geoff Kerr.

After a five-month hiatus enforced by lack of winter workspace, I was finally able to complete the after-class finish work by June 2014.

I added some eastern white cedar floorboards, finished with “Maine boat soup”, to maintain a wood-look continuity between the bright-finished seats.

After Alex had jokingly told his seven-year-old granddaughter, Hannah, that she’d have to make a speech at the launch of his 15′ Chesapeake Light Craft Skerry last summer, she took him seriously and wrote a speech on her own. More than 60 people showed up at the christening and listened to Hannah read her speech, which is printed here as she wrote it.
