I am building the "Sea Rover" by William D. Jackson.

I´m still searching for pictures of this boat

Is there no boat or photo of this boat in the world ???

Thank you for your help,

Sea Rover Cabin - sharing experiences

Hi Gerold,

I tried in vain to find actual pics of a Sea Rover since I'm about to start building one.

I'm confident to need no more than what is published on this site although the conversion to metric may result in minor differences in material dimensions.

Would appreciate to learn from your progress.

Hope this helps.

Pics for your project

Hi, Gerold,

I was excited to see your post. You say your boat is called a Sea Rover by William Jackson.

I have a Sea Babe also by Jackson.

They look very similar so I wonder what the differences might be.

I have been restoring my Sea Babe which my FIL built in 1958. Do you have the original Jackson plans? I have a set for the Sea Babe.

I have a page here on DIY Wood Boat if you'd like to visit and see the pics I have shared. www.diy-wood-boat.com/lady-like-me-1958-sea-babe-restoration.html

Good luck with your project!
I look forward to seeing the pictures.
