63002Re: Stitch & Glue Gloucester Light Dory - The real answer
- Feb 6, 2010Thanks! It's tough to go wrong with SOF . . . I built RUTH ( http://www.woodenboat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=99286 )in a week and a half, for something like $200 or less. You can build SOF kayaks in this non-traditional style, too - check out Tom Yost's website: www.yostwerks.com for many free designs and building instructions. Note that any of his aluminum framed folders can be built (cheaper,faster and lighter) as wood framed non-folders - and, also, that there are many skinning options. There are kids kayaks, too!
I've got a "to build" list like yours - but longer, much longer!
Back to rowboats - Personally, of the two you talk about, I'd go with the GLD over the Oarling, but only because I like the looks better - and I have a sentimental spot for Mr. Bolger.
It's all fun, in any case!
