Here is the second lapstrake boat we built this past year. It is a 9 footer built to be a tender for a large yacht. The Grandy Boat Company of Seattle used to make these little beauties for their Lake Union Dream boats. This was a commissioned boat and the first Grandy to have a sailing rig. As with the other boats we built this year, the lines were taken from an older existing boat. It has a Standing lug or Dipping Lug sailing rig. Western Red Cedar planking, White Oak frames and Sapele interior joinery. The oars and spars were hand made from Sitka Spruce.
