    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    This Ducker built at the ApprenticeShop some years back. I was clerk of the works, keeping an eye on things. Does have a varnished interior; all the frames came out and were varnished on both sides. ( you can do this if you just instert the rivets) Used very little by the original owner, and the current owner got her for a song. He used her a few times. As I recall we did bed the seams; mine like the originals is unbedded and needs some swelling to tighten up a after almost 40 years, or I could tighten up the fastenings.

    Same as the rest of them, about 125. The decked sailing boats are heavier than the rowing / polling ones like yours.
