15’8 Arthur Rogers Lobster Boat – Elena Hillier

Strip planked in cove and bead western red cedar with a sliding gunter sloop rig. The planking will be temporarily attached to the moulds using plastic brads rather than screws. This will allow the moulds to be easily removed and removes the need for filling screw holes prior to sheathing in glass fibre. The plans are from Mystic Seaport and can be found in 87 Boat Designs by Benjamin Fuller.
