My dad and I built a wooden sailing dinghy over one winter when I was about 10 with the help of a sailing friend of my dad's who was also an excellent carpenter. The boat was our tender, but it was also my boat. I sailed it a lot. Sometimes, when we were anchored in one of our favorite (and quiet) spots, I'd sail late into the night under full moon, beam reaching behind the anchored boat, across the creek and back. It was good times.
