Jerry Hamilton launched SONG, a Bay Skiff 15 designed by Karl Stambaugh at Eagle Nest Lake near Angel Fire, New Mexico on September 4, 2010. during his 18 months of work, Jerry made the hull from six panels of 4x8 okoume 9mm plywood, Douglas-fir, and epoxy, then he fiberglassed the bottom to the waterline. Jerry had help from friends in his construction, including a friend who built the 18′ non-tapered bird's mouth mast from Douglas-fir. Jerry modified the plans somewhat.
Displacement hull launch with 4 HP outboard. Build as batten-seam construction from Alaska Yellow Cedar and Port Orford Cedar lumber (full length 1x6 stock). Bottom is 2 layers 1/2″ marine plywood with epoxy fiberglass to the waterline. Cockpit and cuddy cabin trimmed with curly Tigerwood and American cherry. Transom from African mahogany wood. Rowing station was added to design. Cockpit was lengthened by one station.
Ben David bought a set of plans for the Redwing 18 from Karl Stambaugh. He built the 18′ 6″ boat from marine plywood, glued and screwed, covered with fiberglas, and then gelcoat. Ben launched her in July 2011 and moors her at Jeddore Harbour in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Eric Weissberger and Scott Lloyd built this Karl Stambaugh–designed weekend skiff in somewhat more than that weekend, actually it was more than a year. VERBOATEN was built from the plans using stitch-and-glue methods on okoume plywood, and then giving the hull 3 coats of epoxy. Eric plans to use his boat in the waters near Annapolis, MD.
