I have been building one of these over the last month or so. Lots of fun and a great learning
experience for a novice
woodworker & fibreglasser. I am making the sailing version.
I have a 28ft trailer sailer and really want to own a bigger boat
one day. In order to learn skills that would be handy for modifications or repairs
etc I decided to build the stitch and glue dinghy
. It's like an intensive course in the skills I lack.
Here are some pics from the raw plywood
until today. Still more to do but I can almost see the end.
One thing I decided to do different to the plans is make the mast
using the birds mouth process. Lighter and stronger
