17′ Northeaster Dory – Paul Coyne

The boat plans are from the Chesapeake Light Craft catalogue and is built using the CLC method of LapStitch which is a stitched version of clinker or lapstrake. The hull has no keel, but instead a keel plank which gives the boat a nice flat bottom which requires no sole boards to be fitted. As such it is a simple and lightweight boat.
