Here is a picture from David Romasco of Kent Island Boat Works in his Sherpa out sailing near his Chesapeake Bay factory. He tells me that the boat was pushing through very thin ice at the time the photo was taken, very scary stuff to us more tropical types but isn’t she a picture.

Note that North Americans can buy this boat in kitset form from Dave, just go and have a look at his website. We have plans too, of course, but Dave's Computer cut kits are a treat and save a considerable amount of time for a builder in a hurry.
