SPROUT



Chris Greer reports that he built SPROUT part-time over the course of two years from Arch Davis's plans for the Penobscot 14 dinghy. He used white oak for the keel and knees, 6mm Meranti plywood for planking, Douglas-fir for the longitudinal stringers, and sapele for the thwarts, knees, and trim. Chris built the oars from ash and mahogany., and reports that "the boat rows virtually effortlessly and looks good doing it."
