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.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

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

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

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

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!

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??
