This Kid makes me think he is an understudy for Matthew McConaghy!

I just wrapped up hosting the writer of "Dinghy Dreams" whom I posted about earlier. www.dinghydreams.com

She is passing through the Chesapeake on her way to Florida from Lake Champlain. A seriously fun couple of days.  I helped her out with material things like dockage, provisions, laundry, repairs and parts. In return, she told me stories and played her ukulele down at my dock in the evening.

She writes her own songs and I find the lyrics to be genuine and clever, and her voice is folksy and just the thing for a fun time at anchor with friends and drinks. I urged her to start recording them and putting them on her blog.  She didn't really ask me for anything and every time I gave her stuff she kept asking "Are you sure this is ok?"

She has some things to learn about sailing, but overall I find her to exercise good judgement and sail conservatively. I think she's going to do well.

Yes, I first met her in Desolation Sound in BC, Canada, she struck me as a special spirit then, we had dinner with her and her then sailing mate and ran into each other cruising.  She has remained true to her calling and is following her dream.  I applaud her for striking out on her own.  I send her wishes for fair seas and a following breeze.  Good on ya Ajax for helping her on her way.

Zen-  That's great that you got to meet her as well.

Man, her boat seems so fragile. I'll be glad when she makes it to Florida and stops for a dedicated repair period.  She treats it like it's fragile though, and doesn't take unnecessary risks, thank goodness.

I know my view is tainted by the fact that I've kept moving up to larger, stronger boats and my fears might be somewhat unfounded.

Once you watch one of these Google starts flooding.  Another Patreon wooden boat build.



Built with his Great, Great, Great Grandfather's hand tools. 

"We are building a 38’ wooden sailboat designed in 1934 by William Atkin.  Atkin calls this particular boat “Ingrid” but our vessel will be named “Arabella”, once built we intend to take her to the most far flung corners of the world."

Well good for them. If you're using old tools, you may as well ignore 80 years of progress in yacht design too.

I have no idea what the life expectancy of a pine boat is...

I assume it will rot pretty quickly.

as for the shape - the bow is pretty brutal

The dories that we have here in North Brittany (design was imported from newfoundland) are mostly built with some form of whitewood. You need to keep up with the tar or the paint to preserve them. Some that were built when I was a kid 30 years ago are still around though.

Nevertheless as noted above, they seem to expose the end grain and they don't seem either to worry too much about orienting the grain in the right direction, they don't seem to steam bend or laminate the wood, that will weaken the boat especially using softwood.

this is well made - but old blokes with big music looks a bit weird







I have noticed that more of my films are coming from here....

https://sailing-channels.com/

but soon after clicking on the sailing channels link you get hit with a Patreon plea for the people who own the cut and past channel

ah well!

The Deltones are click baiting like champions. Not sure they will take their gear off when they get to St Helena though. The locals who think King George VI is still on the throne might see that as an invitation to good to refuse.

Dylan get a wriggle on, you only need 67 million views to close the gap.

Video has been pulled.... what's with that? I was actually interested in the project/topic (the electric bike conversion, not the nude biking...)
