My father does not have access to the internet so I am posting some of his work he would like to sell. If it generates any intrest I can get prices from him. Also could some of the LJ’s here tell me what might be a fair price for these and anyhwere else I might get some intrest. I should be able to get better pictures if requested. They are located in Delaware. Paste this lat and long into google maps 38.642551,-75.330752

One of the boats is from chesapeak lightcraft and another from bear mountain boats.
Wood stirp constriction, fiberglassed and 2 part epoxy, paddles with inlay made for some…. I will get all details and edit this post later.

The yellow kayak on top has a flip up rudder with foot pedals and a sail but do not have to be used. It’s a really neat boat.

This boat in the 2 pics above was biult with cypress that my father and I picked up on the cheap at a really old saw mill when he came to visit me in louisiana and deliver my brthday present in the next pic. He pulled it all the way from Delaware.

This one is not for sale. It was my birthday present!

The boats are located in southern Delaware.

The two above are made of spanish cedar.

That’s a beautiful canoe.I was reading that alot of these canoes are only a quarter of an inch thick is this true seems awfully thin to me as is the one in my wooshop books I am reading. Really like your work. Alistair

Yes they are very thin but sturdy as hell. The fiberglass cloth and 2 part epoyx helps with that.

The one he gave me for my birthday is 15.5’ long and only weight around 60 pounds

I love handcrafted wooden boats. That kayak is especially cool looking. I am not a boat enthusiast so I could not offer a suggested price but I do appreciate the effort he must have put in. Thanks for sharing.

@NYRockingChairs They are located in southern Delaware. I guess i need to put it in a different spot in my post. In the middle of the post it says Delaware.

Hey Inger yes they are still for sale but maybe not the 2 man light color trim and darker strip. He wants to give me that one Its under the yellow one. Although he does have quite a few more. He builds like one every year. Currently building one now. The yellow one has an articulating rudder with foot controlls I think. Maybe hand. It also has place to put up the sail and the hoist riser. He has those also. I think he also built an inboard center console fishing boat but didn’t have the extra money to buy the Inboard engine. Has been in the ocean and is sea worth though.

Oh lord Scotsman I never noticed your quote but something you should ask your primary physician for Parkinson’s is for hyperbaric oxygen therapy commonly referred to as HBOT. I’m certified to treat people in the hospital but there were so many alements it helps that I wasn’t taught. It’s amazing. Even 15+ years after a stroke it will help remove the problems that came from the stroke. Also they just started testing how well it helps children with autis. Im about to get treated for a traumatic brain injury I received.
