That is a NE Dory class. 

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

On the table behind the dory's, under the hanging boats. Long hull, length is made up of 5 panels.

I asked John about it a while back on CLC's facebook page, he was politely evasive.  Sounded like he wanted it to be a surprise.

In the memorable words of the late Roy Scheider: ""You're gonna need a bigger boat"

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

It's a pretty awesome boat that they are prototyping. We got to see it in the beginning stages of build up while taking a Shearwater course with the production manager a couple weeks ago. 

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

Oh?  Did they give you any more details?

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

All will be revealed.  Make sure you have purchased your CLC Decoder Ring, and await instructions.

It's the WD-Q (Wood Duck Quad) which will debut at the Mid-Atlantic Small Craft Festival on October 2nd. A 24-ft 4-holer with sail rig and provision for a 2-hp outboard or an electric drive. Can be paddled solo by 500-lber's with show size up to 23, or by lighter boaters who tuck their mother-in-laws into the back hole.

You heard it here first!

Obviously Laszlo got his decoder ring first......

The obvious question is why? Is this the divorce boat for 4 marriages?

Especially since a boat clause should be standard in any decent PreNup

Is that the new 2 man Annapolis Wherry?

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

It looks too narrow to me to be the tandem wherry.

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

i saw it today and got a look at the plans and know sorta what it is but don't know if i should say.

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

John just let the cat out of the bag in the CLC spam. It's a 30-ft proa.

Personally, I think that the WD-Quad might be more practical :-)

 Just kidding!

It'll be interesting to see how this goes. Good luck, John.

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

Ok, NOW what are they building?

My money is on the tandem wherry this time.  Its a little shorter than the 30' Proa, looks beamy enough to be a wherry, the strakes are the right size...we'll know when the transom comes out.

"we'll know when the transom comes out"

As the actress said to the bishop...

...Boom!

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

Speaking of new prototypes, whatever happened to the CLC Adirondack Guide Boat?  I saw one at the Wooden Boat Show in Mystic, but haven't heard a peep about it since.

 Take care,

Could it be a "Chester Yawl"..?

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

No.

It was a 15' S&G open (except, IIRC, for little AGB "decks" at the very ends) double-ender, displayed near the booth and on the water, and described by a CLC representative as a new Adirondack Guide Boat.  I'm not that familiar with this industry, but based on experience with other trade shows I thought / hoped that CLC was using the appearance to begin marketing the new kit, plans, or whatever.  Unfortunately, ever since then I haven't seen a single mention on the website, nor heard anyone question why not in the forum.

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

Jayhawk is right, it's the tandem wherry. I was down there today and they let me take a peek.

RE: Something interesting on the webcam

It appears Laszlo @ Fri, September 3 » 5:16 PM nailed it (whatever 'nails' are, in an S&G community.) Perhaps he 'copper-wire-twisted' it.

Read the new link on the right - 'The Life of Boats'. It explains all.

Interestingly, the "gigantic kayak" theory is both right, and wrong.

Maybe John should christen the vessel "Schrödinger".
