I found myself thinking about Chesapeake Light Craft recently. Here is an organization that is bringing good-looking wooden boats – and boatbuilding – to a wider audience but marketing an array of kits. How can I not love this idea? There boats are mostly plywood stitch & glue deals, and the results are good, if not spectacular. They certainly produce better results than many of the plastic ones out there (I know, including mine). In short, they serve an important niche and I hope they continue to prosper.
