Jericho Bay Lobster Skiff

Stirling Fraser was astonished that his 15′6″ Jericho Bay Lobster Skiff floated when he launched it last July at Denman Island, British Columbia. He described his unnamed outboard-powered skiff as a plain-Jane version of the design by Joel White. After buying plans for the boat at The WoodenBoat Store, he built the hull with strip-planked western red cedar with System Three epoxy and coated the interior with Kiwi Grip. Stirling called the boat's performance when powered by an old 25-hp Mercury outboard “very sprightly.” He noted that it’s a great skiff for summer days and he is happy to share his mistakes at swfvi@yahoo.ca.
