Sherwood Queen Design

Sherwood Queen by Keith Easterday, Sturgis, Michigan

<p> November 2013 </p><p> One of the best projects I have ever done. </p><p> Took about a 1&frac12; years to build. I am powering it with an 18hp B&S motor, and a Hydro trans out of a garden tractor. </p><p> Not able to put it in the water yet, as we have had some really cold weather and snow, so I have it covered for the winter. </p><p> Would like to say thank you to Glen-l for a wonderful product. </p>

I don\'t think I have to make any comments to each individual picture as they speak for themselves.</p> <p>As I already mentioned the boat went into the water in August 2000 and ever since I have had a lot of fun with her.</p>

Sherwood Queen by Chuck Hughes, San Diego, California 29 June, 2009 My name is Carol Bennion and I thought you would be interested in seeing the boat my brother-in-law built from your drawings of the “Sherwood Queen”. It will be ready just in time for Summer! A nice launching party is a must to celebrate this beautiful boat.

\"Giant\" Sherwood Queen by Norm Tyler, Spring Valley, California

<p> 26 April 2007 </p><p> I purchased the Sherwood Queen plans after completing the Glen-L Console Skiff. This time, however, I wanted to follow plans precisely. </p><p> I bought plans to build the boat with my Dad when I visit him on vacation twice a year, so we don’t have a lot of time to work on it, especially in the winter. When I told my Dad I had purchased plans, he was excited, but wanted the boat to be slightly larger, which was fine since I knew we could increase length by 10% which would result in a 17-foot long boat. </p><p> Well, I am a little embarrassed to report that, despite being a 4th year Engineering Student, I plugged some incorrect numbers into my calculator (15.5” x 1.1) should have given me my length (but remember I was in a hurry because I didn’t want my Dad to be disappointed with the tedious part of frame set up), and managed to calculate a spacing that created a 21’ boat! I have tried many times to reproduce, on my calculator, that number, but have been unsuccessful. </p><p> Well – we are stuck with it now. The breasthook angle was quite large, creating a bulbous bow that I had to cold-mold and fair to the rest of the hull, giving a flared side. Also, since I was concerned about the length, I applied 2 layers of 10 oz. cloth to hull, and 6 layers to transom exterior. </p><p> The lines, when observed from a bird’s-eye view are very attractive and smooth and look like other Queen’s on the picture archive. The big difference is my length to beam ration is close to 3 to 1, instead of closer to 2 to 1. </p><p> I am going to post a question on the forum regarding how I should power this monster. </p><p> Thank you, for a nice set of plans. </p><p> Norm Tyler</p>
