The Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding, located in Port Hadlock, Washington, launched this Nordlund skiff in December last year. Built by instructor Ben Kahn’s 2013 Basic Boatbuilding Class, it is 11′ long, and weighs just over 100 pounds. The skiff is planked with western red cedar and Alaska yellow cedar over sawn frames. Guards and floorboards are Port Orford cedar. The stem and transom are sapele, and the oar pads are black locust.
