Jack Casey built his last boat, a sixteen foot row punt, in 2009 at eighty-eight years old.  Used by Wally Skinner of Pasadena, she is twenty-seven inches deep and sixty inches wide at midships.

“Boats used to be more narrow.” Jack notes, “When I started I would build a fourteen foot  rodney, about four to four and-a-half feet wide, and probably about twenty-two inches deep. We made her light and easy for carrying over ice.” Jack Casey – Punt v Rodney
