2017 Custom Richard Stanley Lobster

Southwest Harbor, Maine


This like-new boat was launched in 2017, and built by Richard Stanley Custom Boats of Bass Harbor, Maine, a design of a wooden hull with a molded fiberglass deck, cabin, and shelter assembly.  She was built for either commercial or pleasure use with a pot hauler. Her fir cockpit platform is spacious to accommodate just about any desired use!  Her cabin can be outfitted for overnighting as well.  Her graceful sheer with traditional windshield and shelter area are what make this Downeast boat both attractive and functional. And she offers the stability of a wooden boat with the ease of maintaining a fiberglass deck assembly.

This boat is a new building technique of a wooden hull and a fiberglass deck assembly, the opposite of what has been previously built using the combination of fiberglass and wood. And the idea is a smart one in that the effects of sun, fresh water, and weather in general react negatively with the natural movement of wooden decks and superstructure more than they will with fiberglass. And the wooden hull in the salt water will give the natural flotation and steadiness that make going through the water more comfortable and enjoyable.

The wooden hull is 1 1/4" cedar planking over 1 1/2" x 2 3/4" oak frames, 9" on center.  Silicon bronze fastened. The keel is 7" wide.   The 1 1/2" thick Douglas fir platform is 22' L x 14' W with 4 Anchor aluminum rectangular deck plates w/SS trim rings and 3 round 9" hatches--two over fuel tank fills and 1one over engine coolant fill.  4 custom SS deck cleats by Harrison Pinkham. 1/8" SS trap sheathing on starboard side fastened with SS screws with zinc. SS corner guard on starboard transom. Solid SS half-oval. Transom scuppers.

Custom fiberglass house and deck assembly is close-celled foam cored fiberglass, fastened to hull with SS screws, built by Scott Edgerly of Surry. Teak handrails. 13" washrails. Bomar square windows with opening helm windshield. 7' headroom at helm.
