The Black Sheep

This is a 2013 new-build, designed by James-Craft; The Black Sheep is a reproduction Chris-Craft Kit Boat, 1956 Zephyr Runabout. I spent about 600 hours building her over the course of 4 summers — about 10 hours per week June-August. This is my first boat build. The Black Sheep is built entirely of mahogany, using epoxy and brass screws. I covered the hull in fiberglass. She is powered by a 2014, Evinrude 30hp E-Tech outboard, which gives her plenty of power as she weighs only about 350 pounds (without engine). I am a Catholic priest and the name “The Black Sheep” is a funny play on words..... after all..... I am the different one in the flock of my family!
