finally sending some pictures of the project of building a WESTPORT
DINGHY. This is my firstbuilding experience and although there
are some mistakes, I think (and people who have seen the boat
agree) that it came out very well. The project began late October
2000 and launch day was mid May 2001. I used a cedar wine box
for the stem and Douglas fir for the frame. Seats are aluminum
thwarts with marine ply. Well here are some photos... (in reverse
is a truly wonderful boat to row. It has given me hours of enjoyment.
