My dinghy has evolved over the years. Started out with 9' sailing hull. Put together mast and rig originally out of chain link fence rail, and cut down old jib to make gaff rig main and jib. Later upgraded to 2"aluminum mast. After I sunk it I decked out boat leaving pockets to sit in with insulation foam, filled void with pourable foam , then glassed over. Has laid up dagger. Need to do new rudder, broke 2 so far made of wood. I'm thinking of making one out of old outboard bracket and grp. Was thinking would make survival boat,after going through some 7' breaking waves not so sure. Was one wild ride was just lucky to stay upright during very short ride.I chickened out and went back behind jetty.
