These kits were designed and developed by Rodger C. Swanson of Swanson Boat Company, a farm boy from North Dakota who spent his years around the Great Lakes and the North Eastern harbors gleaning everything that he could about traditional wooden boats. If you know him, you know that he can speak a lot on the subject. I began as his apprentice in 2020 which was very enriching and special because he is my father. He has since retired and is enjoying old boats, good books, and coffee into his golden years.
