The vessel has a “downeast” style hull form characterized by a spoon bow , stepped sheerline, soft chines and full keel.
The hull is constructed cedar (carvel) planking over double steam-bent oak frames on close centers. Fastenings are silicon br. screws. The hull girder is further strengthened via heavy oak stringers, deck clamps and floors bolted securely. The hull exterior has renewed enamels while the interior where accessible has a combination of bare and or red lead coated surfaces. The vessel has moderate to heavy scantlings by todays’ standards.
The decks are (2) layers of fir plywood with FRP and or epoxy overlay and bare undersides. Framing is both transverse and longitudinal using heavy lumber.
