blt2ski will become famous soon enough
here you go 30 yrs later, still not splashed, this trip was two yrs ago, was to go in last yr, maybe this year. Step dad is now in his mid 80's, 2 hip replacements later, one knee replacement, I hope he is able to sail it once before he goes away. Not my type of boat. If he was working on a T-bird..........maybe.

Not sure it is worth building one yourself, other than to say you did it, yes been there done that with an 8' pram, and typical 12' sloop rig as a teen in plywood from Glen-L plans. I may build a dingy again, to sail in a small lake near me, probably an El Toro if I can verify a local fleet is availible to race against. other wise, not sure why?

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
