Bob Clem Launch

Noted Chatham watercolor artist Bob Clem was often seen cruising the local waters in his double-ender launch. I was commissioned to build a scratch model of the launch. I started by taking photographs of the boat, as there were no plans available. I captured the shape of the hull from every angle, as well as close up details of the deck, fittings, tiller and engine box. The model has been on display at Chatham’s Atwood House Museum since May, 2011.
