Smile Hello

I'm new to this thread but wanted to say hello.

I'm just starting out learning to Sail, It's so cool. I found some folks at the Port Angeles Yacht club willing to teach me about sailing. I bought a sailing dingy to learn in and then discovered it needs some major repairs. So I'm also learning how to repair a wooden boat. The bow has major rot and is getting new wood. The center board is OK but the housing needs rebuilt, it's warped and pinches off the center board so it won't come down.

I'm looking forward to finishing it and painting it with some quality marine paint, it's a Blue Jay Dingy. I know what I'm naming her but where do you put the name on a Dingy?

The name can go whereever you want it to be! If you put her name on both sides of the hull at the bow, the people you're racing will know who's catching-up, and if you put her name on the transom, they'll be reminded of who just passed them

Dingy-sailing is a fantastic experience, and will provide valuable experience if you ever want to move to bigger boats

Now there's a thought! Thanks for the info, The Transom should do nicely. Oh, with the playground I have for a backyard, a bigger boat is in the plans.
Retirement is going to be a KICK.
