The Boy Scouts of Camp Wah Tut Ca in Northwood, New Hampshire just launched a new sailing surf dory built by Graham McKay of Lowell’s Boat Shop in Amesbury, Massachusetts. Modified from Lowell's standard surf dory design, the 27′ x 7′ ketch will also serve as a pulling boat. Graham built the hull with cypress planking on black locust frames, custom cast oarlocks, and copper and bronze fasteners. Some of the fasteners came from two navy whaleboats that were used by the camp in the 1930s and 1940s. She has a mainsail with a standing lug, and a sprit-rigged mizzen.
Bob Elliott led a group of seven students in building this Merrimack Skiff at Lowell's Boat Shop in Amesbury, Massachusetts in 2001. With agathis planking over sawn oak frames, this boat is just over 13 feet long with a beam of two-and-a-half feet. Owner Mark Collins is at the oars in these photos. He enjoys the skiff on Glenn Lake. You can contact Mark at P.O. Box 734, Goffstown, NH 03045-0734.
