Jessica Glazer took these pictures of her father, Russ, sailing WILLIWAW. Arch Davis designed the gunter-rigged Penobscot 14 , that Russ built with 1/4″ mahogany plywood, pine stringers and seats, and fir knees and spars. Russ sails his boat in Western Massachusetts.
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."
Fred Fisher, a retired cabinetmaker, finished this Arch Davis-design Penobscot 14 in November 2003. He planked the boat with 1/4" mahogany plywood with Spanish cedar stringers and trim. The rail cap, interior, and oars are white oak. The mast and spars are laminated Douglas fir. Fred uses his boat in Blackwater Bay, Florida.
