I was 12 or 13. We had an old clunker of a boat somebody had built. This was definitely not a production boat. 14 foot. My Dad, brother and I put a mast and rudder, leeboards, and an aluminum mast on it. We made some sails out of some old heavy cotton. It was a pig, but fun and almost impossible to capsize.

A couple of years later we built an OK dinghy. The clunker went back to being and outboard.
