Sherwood Queen

7 July 2005

I started building the Sherwood Queen right after Christmas and launched it on June 15th. I live in Thunder Bay Ontario Canada on the Kaministiqua River, which flows into Lake Superior. I followed the plans for the hull but modified the cabin. I am using a 1968 Johnson 10 hp. Top speed is 7 1/2 miles per hour and uses 1 gallon of gas per hour at 3/4 throttle. I plan to use it for cruising and fishing on Lake Superior for lake trout and salmon. The boat handles 3 foot waves with ease. I have installed navigation lights, horn, bilge pump, fish finder, compass and vhf radio. The final cost was 4,000 cdn., not including trailer and motor.
