59649Re: Small boat vs. small boat
- Feb 1, 2009I built an Elegant Punt for/with my eight year old son because it
didn't need epoxy or glass, which meant he could safely help. It
turned out to be a great little boat, it carried the whole family
(four of us) while the kids were small (about ages 9 and 12) and it's
still in use 12 years later, protected only by oil paint over the fir
ply. It sails well enough with the standard instant boat rig, over-
the-side daggerboard and all.
