|"Pilgrim" is my shoal-draft skiff cruiser, 18'6".
Drawn as "Redwing" by Karl Stambaugh, N.A.., she took 1 yr and
4 mos of steady work to build. Powered by a 15hp 4-stroke Honda engine
in a sound-insulated engine compartment, she is steered by standard
cable-pulley mechanisms. She sports a small marine head and galley,
sleeps two, but will accommodate four for evening cruises. If she looks
like a circa 1900 Chesapeake oyster boat, that's because she is, simply
adapted to ply, oak, fiberglass, and epoxy building techniques. Launched
in June, she has been in the water since. A pleasure to see and steer,
she will now receive attention to cabin brightwork.
