Description

Master boatbuilder and NWSWB instructor, Emeritus Ray Speck, drew the lines for this classic Puget Sound small craft while working as a young boatbuilder in Sausalito CA. Ray saw that the harbormaster, Sid Foster, was using a particularly sweet little 12’5″ lapstrake skiff to row around Richardson Bay. Ray took the little skiff’s lines with Sid’s permission, and over time, developed them into a range of skiffs from 13 to 18 feet long. Ray estimates he’s built just about 100 of these beautiful boats so far in his nearly 45 year career as a boatbuilder, many of them while teaching at the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding. Built from Western Red Cedar, Sapele, and White Oak. Includes a set of custom oars, sprit rig, custom cover and EZ Loader trailer.
