The stars and stripes boat shown above in our shop measures 15' between fore and aft perpendiculars, has a moulded beam of 5', and a depth amidships of 1'-6", and with her 9mm Okoume planking weighs about 175 pounds. She has a plank keel that is straight in profile and 12" wide outboard at the 'midship station. Her overall profile mimics the Duck Trap Wherry, but she's deeper and broader of beam. Her deadrise is quite similar though she has a harder bilge, and of course is much beamier. The transom exhibits the lovely wherry tuck and tumblehome that you've come to expect of our boats.The lofting for the Christmas Wherry is printed on a single 36" wide 24# blueline sheet measuring approximately 18' long.
The Christmas Wherry is an attention getter wherever she goes.
future christmas wherry

I'm just starting to build the christmas wherry after researching many small boats.I live in Sarasota FL so the rowing and sailing potential is unlimited, I've just got to build the boat first.The plans do offer all the critical details of construction. One comment about the plans-the precise dimensions have altered slightly during printing - the six stations being 10-0-12 instead of 10-0-0. the stem dimension is 2-2-10 instead of 2-2-8,etc. It's just a minor complication to be worked around to remain accurate and precise.
