    I own two molds. The first is a 14ft Whitehall (lapstrake style) mold. A very desirable and popular little boat. Lots of people like to set these up with sliding seats.
    The other is a 17ft Kingston Lobster Boat mold. google this boat, it's gorgeous!
    I am a skilled wood worker with a great deal of experience in marine carpentry. I live in Port Townsend, WA and I'm in search of someone interested in producing these boats to a high standard and marketing them with me.
    I want to start with producing the Whitehall in the beginning.
    I have the molds and the skill/tools. Need shop space/and small amount of $ to get this going. I also have an excellent web designer that owes me.

    Interested?? Then lets get one built for the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival by 9/09. No, they won't let us show them there as they are fiber glass but I have a very visible spot to show them where visitors to the event will see the boat on the way there.
