Introducing the Ocracoke 20B
You’ve been asking for it. The new new Ocracoke 20B is here. We’ve added an integral plywood bracket into the popular Ocracoke 20 and increased the deadrise for even better offshore performance.
Aug. 25: Rough Point 37 Flipped
Hugh Wilde and his team just passed a big milestone on the new Rough Point 37. The boat is now upright. An unprecedented amount of structure was built into the jig allowing the hull to be easily flipped with no additional temporary structure. Hugh reported that the hull didn’t even creak and it doesn’t even have a deck on it yet. Check out more of their progress on the Rough Point FB page.
B&B Finishes First in 2016 Watertribe Expedition Races
Graham and Alan have returned from the 2016 Everglades Challenge and Ultimate Florida Challenge both with first place finishes in their classes. Hard testing like this is what we enjoy most about small boat sailing. We are proud to show once again that plywood, epoxy, aluminum and dacron in the proper configuration results in safe, reliable craft with the strength to carry on as long as the sailor can endure.

NEW Outer Banks 20 Complete Kit
Now you can build an Outer Banks 20 from a kit!
The first kits for the Outer Banks 20 have been produced and we are looking forward to seeing them go together. This boat continues to attract even the old salts with her shapely lines and great proportions. We’ve spent a lot of time refining the original and making this kit as easy as possible. CNC cut bulkheads, frames, keel, and stem combined with a two-piece developed panel bottom mean that you’ll have the hull put together and on your way to gunk-holing in no time. Check it out.
Announcing the new Ocracoke 256
You’ve been asking for it. Here she is. The 256 features an integral bracket and two cockpit models to choose from. Lots of customization is possible with this kit and all in a package that is offshore capable and trailer-able.
