Paul Marshall of Granite Falls, Washington, was very proud on September 1, 2013, when he launched his Yankee Tender after 30 years of (as he says) working on it in "fits and starts." She is the 12′6″ × 4′6″ design from WoodenBoat based on an Asa Thompson skiff design. He built her from plans bought at The WoodenBoat Store. Paul made the frames from oak, the planking from western red cedar, and the transom from Honduras mahogany.
On July 1, 2013, William K. Wills launched 12-TOO in Urbanna, Virginia. He built the 12′4″ Yankee Tender skiff from WoodenBoat Plan #400-011 available from The WoodenBoat Store. William planked her with white cedar on white oak frames, employing silicon bronze and copper fastenings throughout. 12-TOO will serve as the “Tender in Residence” for the 55TH VIRGINIA, a restored Virginia Buy Boat homeported in Urbanna, Virginia.
