The Lawton Tender
|Displacement (Capacity)||575 lbs|
|Draft (at Capacity)||4.83"|
|Depth at Bow||23.16"|
The Lawton Tender came about in response to a customer looking for a small yacht tender he could build with strips. The lines were taken directly from John Gardner’s Building Classic Small Craft and modified for cedar-strip construction. Originally designed by Charles Lawton, renowned for his fine tenders and superlative craftsmanship, the tenders had to “row and tow well, be moderately good seaboats, carry heavy loads, yet shine like a piece of fine furniture.” The Lawton Tender will complement the finest yacht or serve as classy little fishing boat.
About Our Kits
All of our kits are created as we get orders. Please email us (email@example.com) with your name, address, telephone number, and shipping address (if different) and we will email a quote that includes packaging and shipping costs. A "kit" can include everything or just certain items. If you just want strips, email us with the pertinent name and address, the design you are building and we will email a quote. We mill all of our strips here at our facility in New Hampshire to the highest standards after air drying the cedar. If you pick up at our shop, of course there is no shipping charge. We will shrink wrap your materials so that they are impervious to the weather. A kit can be picked up with a vehicle that you would normally use to transport your canoe or kayak.
If you haven't built a stripper before and aren't sure about the process, you may want to get a Pre-Kit first. This includes our "Cedar Strip Building" DVD, "Applying Epoxy and Fiberglass" DVD, and Susan Van Leuven's book, "Wood Strip Rowing Craft".
