Sea Bright Skiff

National Fisherman

My first lapstrake boat, this Sea Bright Skiff, was designed by John Gardner, one of the foremost designers, builders, writers, and historians of the wooden boat revival. He featured it in his column “Comments Here & There” in The National Fisherman where he was technical editor. The plans were adapted by Gardner from a historic boat and published in his book, “Building Classic Small Craft.”
