Building a Dingy

Hi, I'm a 68 yr. old living on a small island in B.C. Canada. Sail a 25' Catalina and am just starting to build an "El Toro" Sabot dingy. Got a full set of plans off Craigs list and am puzzling myself through the process. There isn't any instructions with the plans so this is a really great challenge to interpret the process. And of course, lots of fun. If any of you out there have ever taken on a similar project let me know. Also, are there any Sabot clubs in B.C. that anyone knows of? Cheers, Darryl (Gabriola Island)

Re: Building a Dingy

Not aware of any clubs around here but there's a fair contingent up in Gunboat Bay in Pender Harbour.. you'll see 3 or 4 or them out on a decent summer day, and the bay gets a real nice inflow breeze when the sun comes up.

Welcome to Sailnet.. always nice to see another BCer. As I'm sure you know Gabriola has quite a good wooden boat building school at Silva Bay.
