One of two Grandy tenders that I helped build this year. This one was christened “Pepito” by the owner. She is a beautiful traditional lapstrake or clinker built boat. Red cedar planking on White oak steam bent frames. Her backbone is made of Sapele as well as all interior joinery. Sitka Spruce was selected for the oars. The planks were clench nailed with copper nails as in the old days. No stitch ‘n glue here.
