The first Mesker has been built by Skol ar Mor, the most renowned wooden boat-building school in France. Mesker is built in the traditional way. There is not any plywood included in the boat. However, the semi-dory hull shape makes construction easy: limited twist of the hull strakes, no rabbet at the stem. We also use some modern techniques, for example for the laminated frame.
We have in mind to draw a modern version, with a plywood clinker hull, in 2019.
