In Festival Boats 2019

I wanted to build a tug-style boat for many years and Glen Whitt’s design appealed to me for its jaunty look and interior space. The plans called for traditional plywood on frame construction with fiberglass covering the hull. I stuck with douglas fir for the entire build. I choose an outboard over inboard for safety and interior space. After a successful launch at Fern Ridge Reservoir-her regular summer crusing spot-she explored Yaquina River, Puguet Sound and in June will be in the Salish 100.
