Not "Downeast" I know but there are plenty of ply wood boats floating around our waters, alot used in the commercial fisheries. A little introduction about my self. Some of you know that I am a high school shop teacher, started a boat building class 15 years ago and it has morphed into some interesting projects. Most of what we build is in the traditional "Brockway" style. A local builder from our area, I'm sure most of you have heard of him. I have probably built over 30 of these boats with my students over the years from 8 - 20 feet. The queen of the fleet is a 20' scow that we built and use for the local shellfish commission in our area. Check out some pics. No particular order.
