COMPASS SKIFF (SHARK BOAT) WILL REPAINT IF DESIRED

The Compass Skiff was designed to as a cute, small, outboard-driven skiff that would provide a stable platform to help kids get out on the rivers and lakes and protected bays. While performance is not the point of a small outboard skiff like this, a 6hp motor can definitely get this boat to plane no problem and a 3.5hp would power her just fine. The Compass Skiff makes a capacious dinghy or all around fun boat to explore in.

Before the advent of the outboard motor, rowing/sailing skiffs were common on Chesapeake Bay. They were used for crabbing, fishing, transporting goods, and enjoying summer evenings with a friend. Many local kids could row their dad's skiff long before they could ride a bicycle. The original Jimmy Skiff is a great lightweight skiff for rowing or sailing. We called our skiff "jimmy," Chesapeake slang for a male blue crab, because the Jimmy Skiff design is derived from rowing and sailing skiffs once common on the Chesapeake Bay.

The Deblois St. Dory (DSD) is a modern take on the famous Swampscott dory. The traditional hull shape has been adapted for typical recreational use as a sail-and-oar boat. Two or three people could load up the dory for weekend camping trips to explore the Maine Island Trail, or other waterways. The DSD is also very well suited for hourly excursions because the boat can be easily launched at a boat ramp for a leisurely row or sail, or both! A dory is a natural choice for shallow waters, tripping, beaching, and all around use where versatility is paramount, capacity is important, and rowing or sailing in tandem is the goal.

The Dory has three rowing stations and could accommodate a coxswain to help steer. Conditions permitting, the boat can also be handled by a single rower. There are a variety of sail rig options available at an additional cost to the base price.

Former Compass Project program director, Shane Hall, built the DSD Hull #1 and thoroughly enjoys exploring Casco Bay, the Maine Island Trail, and the large lakes of western and northern Maine. The DSD fully accommodated two people with ample gear and supplies on a weeklong camping trip on Moosehead Lake where the rapidly changing weather conditions made Shane extremely glad that he was in the dory which would handle the rough conditions.

This boat is currently under construction at the Compass Project boat shop in Biddeford. Middle and High School student groups will be building the boat over the course of the school year. Commissioning this year’s project would be a great opportunity to visit the boat shop, get to know the youth builders, and even lend a hand with part of the building process if you want to!

Length: 17’4”

This canoe was carefully built by an advanced group of South Portland High School students who had prior experience building boats at Compass Project.  The Penobscot 17 was expertly drawn by Jerry Stelmok based on the time tested designs of E.M. White, himself drawing inspiration from the Malecite and Penobscot Indians of central Maine. With a flat bottom and tumblehome sides, upswept profile, bow and stern, and a distinctive sheerline, this canoe is a fast boat for pleasure paddling and provides a stable platform for fishing. For one or two paddlers with ample room for gear and supplies. This canoe is a work of art that looks equally beautiful hanging on the wall or gliding across the water. The Penobscot 17 would be perfect for the fisherman who appreciates quality and workmanship or for anybody who wants to experience Maine’s bounty of lakes and waterways in traditional style. This work of art would also be well suited for display in a restaurant, bed & breakfast, or vacation home.

Inventory: SOLD! Inquire about commissioning one to be built next school year.

Designer: Matt Barton

Length: 11’

Beam: 32”

Depth: 4¾”

Weight: 35 lbs

The CP SUP was custom designed to provide a great all around paddle board for beginner to intermediate riders ranging from 120-200 pounds. Moderately beamy with rounded nose and sides, this board is a pleasure to paddle in flat water but can also handle a small amount of chop and surf. The board uses torsion box construction: cedar strips are built around a hollow framework of marine plywood. The entire board is sheathed in fiberglass and finished with epoxy and varnish. The result is a lightweight yet strong high performance board with the classic look of a wooden surfboard. The board comes with a single 10” removable fiberglass fin, center handle, and breathing vent.

Designer: Ken Swan

Length Overall: 13’ 6”

Beam: 4’ 11”

Depth Amidships: 14-3/4

Weight: +/- 190 lbs

Capacity: 665 lbs

The Nez Perce 13 is a planing hull motor boat that performs best with a 4 to 8hp outboard motor. It will comfortably carry three adults with gear and will handle choppy water. The sides of the boat flare, dory style, from stem to stern making the boat dry, safe, and at the same time, good looking. The hull is planked with okhume plywood, 9 mil (3/8”) on the sides and 12m (1/2”) on the bottom. The entire bottom plank is sheathed in fiberglass wrapping around the chines. This particular boat under construction is being built with internal chine logs giving the boat a more classic look. The skiff is built with a fish well for storage accessed via a pivoting forward seat. The Nez Perce comes with 2 sets of oarlocks so it can be rowed if need be. This is a great boat for getting the family out on the water or for exploring the Maine Island Trail with the comfort of a motor boat.
