handmade cypress pirogues
I have three pirogues that were handmade for me by Lawrence Wille, in Belle Chase, Louisiana. They were painted by Ron Blue, a longtime wooden boatbuilding instructor at the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum, in Madisonville, Louisiana. One of the three has been in the water 3 times. The other two have never been wet.
I am asking $4,000.00 each, including some combination of the loose gear. They cost me a whole lot more than that!
They are 16 ft. long X 36" wide X approximately 15" high. They weigh 60-70 lbs., depending on loose gear, and 290 lbs. with me aboard.
The construction is clear cypress over oakume marine plywood.They are glued-up and watertight. The removable floor boards are pressure-treated wood.
I also have a boatload of new wooden paddles, pfd's, and 6 detachable/folding seats that Lawrence Wille made, plus a long 2-wheel cart that Ron Blue made.
These boats are located in Hilton Head Island, SC, stored in a new 7 ft X 17 ft. cargo trailer, which will also be for sale once the boats are gone.
