We recently completed a Rangeley Lake Boat and a Humble Bee pram, which at 7'9" is less than half the length of the 16' Rangeley. Both are glued lapstrake construction, using the finest materials available.

The following is a sequence of photos of the construction process of our most recent Rangeley, with the most recent photos on top.
