I looking to build another pulling boat. Years ago I built a Light Dory (Bolger's), I found it fast but tender. I presently row a Welsford Molleyhawk, which is OK but I'm looking for a bit more performance (plus I want to build another boat!). I've kind of narrowed it down to a Streched Light Dory and the CLC Northeaster. (I guess I'm a Dory guy)
I'm wondering how if the Northeaster has improved on the Bolger boat (long version), and how they compare. I will be rowing on Lake Huron, so the potential for some rough conditions. I'm also very tall and heavy. I have built a number of CLC kayaks in the past so I know good and complete their plans are.
I'm also open to any other suggestions. Thanks for the help.
