We have several series of construction and restoration photos that we’re assembling into slideshows for this site.

In the meantime, here are some highlights from the construction of John Linderman’s boats, mostly Y42 FLOTSAM, along with the more recent construction of Y43 GEMINI at the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding.
