It's my first boat, and a long story.

I bought some locally-available luaun plywood. After cutting out the parts, I kept staring at the veneers until I finally went and bought some 6mm 6566 Okoume plywood for the hull. The transoms are still 3/8" luan, as are the middle and rear seat tops. The front seat, which includes the mast partner, ended up being 3/4-inch fir plywood. The gunwales, breasthooks and knees are Honduras mahogany. The mast step is a chunk of 4x4 fir. The centerboard trunk is 3/8-inch luaun. The blades are recycled from another sailing dinghy and are solid Honduras mahogany (I was lucky to get them). The mast is a pole-vault pole and the sail is also recycled from an older dinghy (but is hardly used). l have another picture of it in its gray primer around here somewhere, but it's too depressing to think about. The primer was no good and never set up right, so my sons and I have to grind it off and start over. *sigh*

Hey Rick,
Do what I did - start off doing the job with your sons, then plead old age and slip away for a quiet beer while they finish the job..... :wink: :lol:
