We are fortunate to have a custom order to build a George Calkins 22′ Bartender this winter. This design is famous for giving a smooth ride in rough waters, particularly in ocean cuts with a following sea. The design originated on the Northwest coast of the United States, and has been used by the Coast Guard on East and West coasts, but is also used for recreational boating throughout the world. This Bartender will be cutting through the inlets of Popponesset Bay in Mashpee, Mass. She will be powered by a V-6 Mercruiser and, under ideal conditions, will do 35 knots. Draft is 18″.
Follow the slide show as this boat comes together. Built by Leslie.
