17′ Core Sound Ketch

IMG_00411

Length- 17′   Beam- 72″   Draft- 8″   Weight- 350 lbs.

This is a quite famous design by Graham Byrnes of North Carolina and has won several of the WaterTribe races in both NC and Fla. I made several design modifications to the boat and added lots of brightwork instead of paint. The hull is made of okoume marine plywood, the keel, transom and bow stem are made from Sepele.  The deck is Douglas fir and alternate sepele strips and the seats are yellow pine. The spars and sprits are spruce. This is a very light boat and move along in even the lightest breeze. A great sailing boat!
