The GLBBS class of 2012 built an authentic Beetle designed whaleboat for the Charles W Morgan restoration project at the Mystic Seaport Museum.
The “Chica” was specially designed for GLBBS by Carl Chamberlin of Basic Boats for the lofting exercise that all students must do in the first session.
This traditional boat is a good example of how a “workboat” can be designed and built to be every bit as handsome as any yacht tender or pleasure launch.
The lines of this small cutter are based on a English south coast fishing vessel of the 1850s
A heavily-built flat-bottom workboat with a large towing bit and lifting spars.
A simple flat-bottom lapstrake skiff that can accommodate a small outboard motor.
A very early example of a motorized yacht tender.
This design is of a shallow-draft, beamy daysailer with both an efficient gaff-rigged mainsail and a jib. It is an excellent step-up for beginning sailors who have learned on smaller, mainsail-only designs.
A small flat bottom rowing and sailing skiff.
This unique, electric-powered launch is beautifully built with exquisite woods.
