bwalker42 Thank you Sloopy, Knotty, Brent and Denise, and kilarney, and wandering Sar! I will keep you posted, and have so much fun!

Still not convinced bl does not have a crush on me. If it is not so, then why does he follow me around everywhere I go??

The were both basically built in one weekend! Epoxy coating, fitting out and painting of course took more time then the actual build.
This is fantastic! I love it!

Brent Swain If one wants fibreglass, one can buy thin sheet fibreglass, pull it together, then lay up more glass inside.

bljones Mine too, killarney.
It's a pity you see so few of them around now.

killarney_sailor My first sailboat was a Mirror dinghy, which is an English design that comes in a kit that you build with stitch and glue. Great fun.

WanderingStar I built a kayak with my Dad, a sailing dinghy and a rowboat on my own. The first two were ply on frame, the last pine. Launching and sailing that dinghy was one of the best days of my life. You'll love doing this, please keep us posted.

Knots2U I built a Pygmy Coho four years ago. They have a nice lineup of models including a canoe and a wherry. The kit was A1 and the instructions left no questions. Their estimate was pretty close, I think it was about 70 hours to splashdown. Pygmy Boat Kits

Brent Swain I have been using stitch and glue( weld ) techniques for building steel sailboats , up to 47 feet. We call it origami boat building. The quickest and most practical way to get a hull together. It's as simple as it looks.

I've been lookinig at plans to build my own boat.
Since it will be my first, I'm going to start small, Using the "Stitch and Glue" method.
It should be a whole lot of fun!!!

Brenda, please keep us updated with your progress. I tried building a cold molded dinghy when I was much younger but never completed it. I'll be interested in learning more about the stitch and glue process. At first glance, it looks like a very practical way of building a small boat.
Good luck with the project.
