Having built both, I'm not sure the Shearwater is much harder to build; just different. In the plus category for the Chesapeake 17LT is the availability of a step-by-step video to augment the manual. The same video is really helpful on both boats in terms of epoxy work and finishing, but the deck scheme is different and a little more involved on the plywood Shearwater. We're proud of the Shearwater's manual so here's hoping that folks find them really straightforward to build...
