I built this boat for some customers that were huge fans of the TV show “Dawson Creek.” They were devastated when the show ended, and trolled eBay to purchase memorabilia. One of the things that they bought was the original little boat from the TV show, one of the photos is shown above. They wanted me to fix it so they could use it, but it was clearly built as just a TV prop, out of cheap plywood and the seating more suitable for camera angles than actually rowing. I convinced them to have me build a new boat, instead of trying to resurrect something that would rot by next year anyway. Just under 12’ long, and a little over 3’ wide, made out of okoume plywood, mahogany seats, and with oak gunnels.
