BOAT OWNER'S NOTES for 2013 Handcrafted Rangeley in NEW condition.OVERVIEW:This is a 17’ Rangeley Boat handcrafted by me from a set of plans and completed in late 2013 after approximately 200 hours of enjoyable labor, Shortly after I finished building the boat I was injured in a fall and was subsequently no longer able to safely enjoy the use of the boat.

BOAT HISTORY “The Rangeley Boat is a distinctive American sporting boat that has been in use on the Rangeley Lakes of Maine for over 100 years, and was well known to past generations of fishermen for its numerous excellent characteristics,” In the 1900s it was in common use by fishermen on the Belgrade Lakes, on Sebago Lake, and on other lakes in Maine.FEATURES: The original Rangeley boats were cedar lapstreak construction with ribs on the inside.

This version was designed by the Newfound Woodworks, Bristol New Hampshire, and is made from cedar strips with epoxy resin and fiberglass cloth on the inside and outside, providing strength and protection, The Rangeley is light and fast and is suitable for row trolling or for use with a trolling motor.

The fishing fly on the transom of my boat was hand carved by a local artist making this boat truly unique, a one of a kind.FINAL NOTES: Whether you choose to row around your favorite body of water for exercise and relaxation or use it to seek out your trophy size fish, you will certainly enjoy this boat for years to come, Others will also enjoy a piece of artistic sporting nostalgia as you come into their view.A set of Shaw & Tenney spruce spoon blade oars with sewn on leather and mahogany inlaid tips comes with this boat.

This company has been making these oars since 1858.

Two pair of hand cast outrigger bronze oar brackets are located on the gunwales of the boat to receive the oar locks and oars.

TRAILER: A new aluminum Trail-Ex trailer is also included.

This trailer will never rust and is very lightweight so it can also be used by hand as a boat dolly to bring the boat to and from the water’s edge.If you have any questions, feel free to call me (Bob) at 860 379-0837.
