well, today (as advertised) i begin constructing the strongback for a version of a "cape cod oystering skiff." this boat will be 16'x4'6. the difference in the design is mine will use leeboards instead of a c/b, and have a less-deep skeg (initially, at least.) still haven't made a final decision on the sail rig. cypress on syp, sticking with southern wood for a southern boat seems to make sense. even have the name picked out.
