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.

Finished the circumnavigation in early February in Grenada. Have to work on a book project for the next several months so the boat will be waiting for next year.

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??
