Duck Trap Wherry

Just completed this is a Duck Trap Wherry, designed by Walt Simmons. Purchased as a stalled project off Craigslist the purchase included plans, a set of forms, a keel with stem and transom attached and four sheets of plywood. The garboard plank was installed 7/1/19 and the installation of the oarlocks occurred on 8/4/20. The planks were attached with thickened epoxy and the steamed oak frames were then made and attached with copper rove and nails. Working alone, the rove and nail process was challenging.
