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.

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

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??
