Last summer, Steve Smith launched this 14′4″ x 4′6″ Cosine Wherry, designed by John Hartsock. Steve spent 275 hours on this boat following directions from J.D. Brown’s Rip, Strip, and Row, available from the WoodenBoat Store. He combined white pine and red cedar strips on the hull, glued with epoxy. Steve will be cruising on Lake Champlain and other waters of Vermont.
Andy Stephenson just built this 14′ Cosine Wherry, designed by John Hartsock, and launched it in Hancock Maine on May 24, 2012. He plans to use it to ferry friends and family to his 210 moored near his home.
Howard Elmer says that Anthony Lake, at 8500 feet elevation, is one of the most beautiful lakes in Oregon, beautiful enough for the launch of his Cosine Wherry CHERIE B. Howard’s son, Sage, is shown here at the oars on Lake Anthony. Howard made the boat two feet longer than the plans called for and received assistance from Flounder Bay Boat Co. of Anacortes, WA, and the book “Rip, Strip, and Row.”
Built from 1/4" strips of red and yellow cedar, David Samuelsson's Cosine Wherry looks quite pretty on a beach in British Columbia. David referred to the book "Rip, Strip, and Row" by J. D. Brown in his construction of this boat. Thwarts and rails are Douglas-fir, and the oars are made from spruce.
