Is it me, or do this pictures make everything look soo much easier and cleaner than our projects. I think I'd love to build one of these boats from new material in a shop that does this stuff day in and day out. How long do you think it takes these guys from start to finish? Just some whimsical thoughts...Dan

Pete Thompson told me one time the number of hours to complete a Sea Lancer. It was something like 9 hours to do all the building (keelson, stringers, transom, all the ribs, planking, floor riser, floor framing, plopping the pre-assembled deck framing into place...)

At their peak, they were finishing 30 boats per day at Peshtigo!
