Did I go for the easy title? Perhaps. Do I regret it? Not for a second.
Earlier this year, the family took on a team project of constructing two identical Eastport Pram dinghies from a kit. We estimated that in a few weeks time we’d be finished – and several months later (who’s counting anyway) I’m happy to report that they are done and they are beauties!
Step One: Turning one dinghy into two:
Step Two: Stitch and Glue
Step Three: Epoxy
Tommy did the rest of the work, so the “team project” that I referred to earlier was really more in spirit than practice.
Before the final steps, T & B brought our dinghy down to Betty Jean to make sure that it was able to nest on top of the cabin per our plan.
The last steps involved painting and installing oar locks and a rub rail.
Now to make sure they float. . .
