Peapod From Deer Isle, Maine


This 16' peapod has a mast thwart and step for setting a small sail to help the user when the wind served. These pods sail surprisingly well without benefit of keel or rudder. Her planking is a bit heavy at 9/16", with continuous flat frames  (5/8" x 1 l/8"  like the Whitmore pod) on 6" centers. Near the boat's ends, there are some bent floor timbers, and the stern has a knee that helps hold things together. The bottom is relatively  flat, with a hard  turn to the bilge. She is as deep and as high-ended as the smaller 14' lobstering pods. Her keel is a rela­tively deep, narrow piece  of oak with some rocker, which is handy for holding course under sail, but is different from other peapod keels. Her ends are full, with a stern sharper than the bow, which should  aid tracking.  From 87 Boat Designs by Ben Fuller.  Plans drawn by Mystic Seaport staff in 1963.
