Bucephalus

This Adirondack Guide-boat has a cedar stripped hull over steam bent spruce ribs. She has Curly maple stems and decks with Cherry deck caps. The gunwales and hand caned seats are cherry. The paddle is Cherry. The oars are hard maple. She has galvanized steal shoes. I made everything on the boat except the oarlocks and pins over a two year period.

A video of the complete build can be seen on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXKPkAPHlTE

She won the “Peoples Choice” award in the 2014 annual Door County Wooden Boat Show, and 2nd place in the 2015 annual Sister Bay Boat Show.
