Thank-you for the welcome letter. I've had a look at some of the
conversation threads in the group, and the quality of the group looks
I'm fairly new to boat building, but I've jumped in with both feet.
I've built my 7 & 8 year olds a pair of canoes (roughly based on
Fritz's Wacky Lassie), and I'm about to build a Herb McLeod OSS for
my soon to be 4 year old son. I'm also working (slowly) on a Bolger
Micro (with some small modifications) for my wife and I.
What I'm looking forward to in the future is cedar stripping a
handbuild Sunfish frame I have. I learned to sail on a sunfish, and
I love them. I have had this vision of a cedar strip Sunfish for
years, but I hope to get to it sometime later this year. That's why
I joined this group.
Thanks again for the welcome, I look forward to getting to know folks
here and contributing in any way I can.
Jim, if there's any way our combined experience can help you in
finishing any of your projects, let us know. I'm especially
interested in your Sunfish project. There are lots of applications
for strip-building in the sailing arena. Imagine: a strip-built
Micro. That would be SOME project!
