Pudgie is a Matthews hull kit purchased and completed by the Essco Boat Co. of Essex Ontario. Solid hull, Cedar on oak frames. Single screw. Large roomy cabin, Large after deck. I am the third owner of this well cared for boat. She was out of the water Oct. 2013- June 2015. During this time the bottom was re-caulked, the old fashion way, with cotton and seam compound also re-fastened, with silicon bronze.. The windshield was also re-built at this time. I am very happy with the work done on the bottom and the carpenter did a nice job on the windshield.…Ontario…Canada…More Info
ONE OF A KIND
The hull was built by Gerard Longtin and has the attributes of a high speed offshore type vessel similar to the Ray Hunt designs used for ocean racing. The gentleman passed away before completion of the boat and left a line drawing of the design he had in mind. The cabin and decks were completed in 1986 by Andress Boat Works in Rockport, Ontario.
The hull is constructed of two ¼” layers of moulded mahogany plywood outer skin using an epoxied saturation technique and no mechanical fasteners.…Ontario…Canada…More Info
