Roger Turgeon - Night Heron


Roger Turgeon - Night Heron
The hull is primarily P.O.White Cedar, which is about 35% denser and stronger (and heavier) than Atlantic White Cedar, but since I went with strips of 3/16" thickness instead of 1/4", the weight and strength come out to the same as 1/4" thick Atlantic cedar, on the bottom of the hull where I fugure I need it most. The "darts" in the bottom are a light-colored WRC (I was running out of the POWC). Tiger maple front stem. Note the Great Blue Heron carved into the shingles in the side of the house. The house is called "Heron's Rest", which I am sure must have influenced my decision to build the Night Heron as my first stripper. Nick's plans include both "high" and "low" versions of the fore and aft decks, which can be interchanged. I went with the "low" foredeck and "high" aft deck, resulting in a more gradual slope down along the cockpit.
