14' 8" PARKER DINGHY
Built about 1945 by Lindon 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.
