Lazy Jack is a Chesapeake Bay style power skiff. Karl Stambaugh based the Redwing 18 design on Howard Chapelle’s Camp Skiff design from the 1940s, stretched half a foot and adapted to plywood construction. She is powered by a high-thrust 9.9 hp. outboard and cruises comfortably at a little over 5 knots, burning hardly any gas. She’s a good, relaxing motorboat for someone who likes sailboats. I haven’t had any exciting adventures in Lazy Jack, but that’s not the point. Lazy Jack was built by my friend Jim Cooper and first launched in 2006. I’ve owned her since 2011.
