"Pamela Marie"

by David Tanner
(Towaco, NJ)

My current boat build is to be named the Pamela Marie after my wife, and is a 22 foot SeaHawk designed by William Jackson in 1960 and published in Science and Mechanics magazine.

This plan is listed on the DIY website and elsewhere.

The build has been interesting and time consuming but has proven to be very gratifying so far.

I started building in June 2017 and thus far have the frame completed and the bottom on.

Further building will have to wait until spring as the temperature here in New Jersey is too cold to cure the epoxy presently.

This gets bolted to the transom and
allows for a fuel economy of just under 8 miles
per gallon at 2/3 throttle according to the

Thank you so much for your kind comments.
