14' 8" PARKER DINGHY
Built about 1945 by Linden Parker on Deer Island,
New Brunswick, this is one of the
most handsome and able dinghys produced in an
area renowned for its boatbuilding. Few
if any plans were ever made of these boats as
designs were produced from half models
or from molds and patterns passed from one builder
to another. This is an excellent,
large capacity rowing boat.
