Oliver Ilg

On July 7, 2012, Oliver Ilg of Campinas, Sao Paulo, Brazil launched a 16′6″ Duck Trap Wherry. He writes, "Although not as perfect as I would like to have built it, she is not bad for a first glued-lapstrake project!" He built the hull from 6mm marine plywood made of rose cedar. She weighs only 130 lbs and rows like a dream. He plans to add some teak floorboards later as he hates leaving footprints all over the bottom of the boat. Plans for the wherry are available from Walter Simmons of Duck Trap, Maine.
