A private client commissioned this small runabout of traditional style. The idea is to apply what we've learned about prefabricated stitch-and-glue boatbuilding to the complex (and beautiful) hull shapes of 1950's-era runabouts.  

We chose the name "Rhode Runner" for this shapely and able boat, referencing the nearby Rhode River, site of decades of CLC prototype launches, photo shoots, and small boat symposia.

We are close to completion of a production CLC kit. We've tested two prototypes and we're in the final stages of completing the assembly manual. For now, the Rhode Runner will be sold as a CLC ProKit, suitable for builders with a couple of stitch-and-glue boats under their belts.

Here are the basic specs:

Length: 14' - 9"
Beam: 5'-5"
Dry weight: ~350lbs
Max Power: 25hp outboard
Fuel capacity: 12 US gal
Seating capacity: ~4 adults 
Hull type:  LapStitch™ topsides w/ Vee bottom (12.5° deadrise at the transom for the nerds)
