Thanks for the article Ed! I appreciate the history that comes along with owning these boats. The boats design was based off of a early 60s gunning garvey.

Thanks for the full article and plans. Some pics of the original 1960s garvey: 11 1/2 ft long x 48 in wide.
The glass one is 13 1/2 ft long x 64 inches wide.

Ed, You can label that last picture as a Carl Adams sheer sided BBSB built in 1960 in NJ. That is Sunshine sitting under the Dodger made by David Clark in1977. I've seen that picture, it's hanging in David's shop. That is the same boat that Roy has in the pictures above it.

Thanks, Phil. I'll do that. I really enjoy seeing these and the history. My oldest son lives in Brooklyn. One of these days when we're visiting I'm going to make it to Tuckerton in hopes of seeing some of these boats.

I found some more info on the Guenther Garvey at the link below. Looks like a really neat Garvey/BBSB hybrid.

I'm curious, how does one access the forward hatch when in the boat, reach over the dodger? Does the dodger fold down?

The dodger does fall forward but it would be easier to reach under the dodger and grab what you need while in the boat. The hatch give you quick access up forward when you are outside of the boat. It?s useful when the boat is on the trailer and for cleaning. Up forward I store the fuel tank, tool box, flair kit and a pair of wool blankets. One in a dry bag for safety and the other to throw over the dog after a retrieve.

As a former Estuary owner, I am curious about the differences between the Estuary and Estuary 2 that influenced your decision to make the switch?

Re: Estuary II In reply to
When Dave designs a boat his number one priority is to make sure the boat is seaworthy. The E2 is that but I think the Estuary is the better open water boat. When running the estuary you have a feeling of confidence like your in a 20ft center console. The E2 does run bow up with the right attitude but in a quartering sea the estuary is the dryer boat. The E2 is faster and drafts less water. Up on plane the E2 will run in shallow water where with the original you will be out of the boat walking on the flat. At rest the E2 has more stability, if you are older and have a hard time getting in and out of the boat it would be a better option. The E2 is easier to grass and hide. As far as sneak boxes go after having both I am in the displacement hull camp. That being said Dave thinks the E2 is the better duck boat and is what he?s building for his personal boat. Both hulls were laid up at the same time.

Cedar with epoxied dynell. There will be a glass one at the show if you are going. My boat has a lower sheer cut down a inch and a half. The deck also has less crown in it.
Here is a pic of the one going to the show.
