This was a glued-lapstrake plans built 17’ sloop designed by John Leather I built in 1994. The strakes are marine plywood (Okume) and the thwarts, coaming, risers, rails and sole are sassafras. The mast, boom and yard are spf from the lumberyard; and the tabernacle is SYP. This was the seventh boat I had built using the glued lapstrake technique. Since then I have built three more using that technique.
