Description

Did the horse come before the cart or the cart before the Horse? A dumb question but in the case of the Candlefish 13 and the Candlefish 16, which came first is a legitimate question. The answer is that the Candlefish 13 was the first of these two designs and while the Candlefish 16 was built before the Candlefish 13, by no means does this diminish the importance of the design. The Candlefish 13 was originally designed for Tom McLain of Fairbanks, Alaska and I include the original copy of the design commission listing the requirements for the boat and parameters: January 30, 2006 Custom Design for Tom McLain Fairbanks, Alaska Work Number XXX-XXX-XXXX Charge for Preliminary Design - $XXX with rights for first boat only Paid by check #XXXX 50% down to start design and 50% on delivery of plans Total cost of the design - $XXX 14 foot cartoppable outboard skiff Length 14 feet Beam 48 inches Needs to be less than 150-180 lbs for the basic boat, has to be lifted overhead to a rack on a 5th wheel towing Dodge one ton truck For use in the far North on lakes and non-whitewater bodies of water Wants to use a 6 - 10 HP outboard engine on the stern for power.
