Did you make those kick-up rudders, or are they pulled from something else?
We bought the rigs and rudders from a local dinghy manufacturer.. ended up cutting those rigs as shown down a bit, actually. The side benches/flotation tanks were quite deliberate, also the cross seats simply lifted out for sailing We made our own daggerboards. These little boats were great fun and we learned a lot.
