Beaufort Challenge Boats

The Beaufort National Boatbuilding Competion builds this boat as a competion in less than 4 hours, then races the resultant boats on Taylor’s Creek.

No, they don’t always float so well! But it sure is fun. My wife and I built the red one and came in second in the competition,

then I built the green one for fun. And then I built a blue one, but I don’t have photos.

9mm marine plywood, juniper gunwales, transom and seats.
