Atkin Boats recently built at Bates
- Two Atkin skiffs were built as individual projects at Bates in 2001-
2002. Mark Bright built 'Maud and Emeline', planks and bottom are
Aquatek, frames, knees, breastplate and stem are fir and oak,
gunwales are purpleheart, thwarts are cedar...she is clinch nailed
and screwed together with liberal use of 5200 and very little epoxy;
and Phil built 'Jebb' of okume and oak.
Additionally, the program's instructor, Chuck Graydon, is currently
building (at the shop in Tacoma) a 23' Sand Dollar which he plans to
beach cruise the south Sound in.
