    Default A Nice Sharpie

    Sharpies like this one are common on Long Island. I spotted this one at a town dock across from the yacht club where my daughter works.

    Often, these boats are rougher than this one snd used for work, fishing and /or shellfishing. Most have a raking stem rather than the plumb stem this boat sports. Also note the gunwales: they appear to be a lamination.

    Also note the row of cleats along the seat risers. I wonder if, when the boat is called upon to carry a crowd and a bucket of chicken for a sunset cruise, whether those cleats are used to secure some sort of removable seating? What do you think?

    Note the multipurpose tools.

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

    That keelson is a 2 x 8 and the boat is about 16 feet LOA.

    That's a Bolger clam skiff, about 99% positive. The smaller version, 15'6" I think
