Very nice, you got a place for her or will you drag it behind? I ended up with inflatable due to lack of room.......Dale

LSS: Drag it behind.

Travl: It should fit out the door...It's the basement stairs I am worried about.

bl: I spend 16 hours cleaning and organizing before I started. It's usually a disaster, and is becoming so as the dinghy progresses.

Yup, we've (mostly him) done that project before. Yours is looking great so far, and I hope you're enjoying the process. For us it took a lot more time and money than we wanted to spend for something we could have just purchased instead. For us it was supposed to be a 'cost effective' project, not an enjoyable hobby as I'm sure it is for you.

I'll try and post a photo or two of our project once I remember what my photobucket password is.

Thanks. About $350 invested. I am not building myself to save money, although you can't really buy one for that. Just a better use of my time than watching TV.

Building it to replace this one, which is a wee too small for two.

Somehow we had close to a grand in ours by the end. How does that even happen??!! Oh, and that was without the sail-kit!
