Ken and Deb LaPorte recently finished building their first boat, a Melonseed skiff named TIME OUT. The design is by Marc Barto and available from The WoodenBoat Store. The hull is built from strips of sapele. The sails were made by Polysail International in Florida. They launched the boat in June 2014 on Lake Hartwell in South Carolina, and plan to sail on Lake Junaluska and other lakes in the Carolinas.
