This 8’ boat was on it’s way to the dump. The Wooden Boat Rescue Foundation was aware I was looking for an old boat in need of repair… I repaired the bow, stern, sides and bottom.

That is a serious “repair” for an 8 footer! I understand wooden boats. My son and I made it to WoodenBoat Magazine some years back with an 8’ crabbing skiff.
I look forward to seeing the finished product!

Wow, that’s like fixing a hammer by just replacing the head and the handle. As a sailor, I highly admire your gumption. Keep on keepin’ on!

Nice looking tender you have there! May have been easier to start from the ground up but then you wouldn’t have her “experience” to help tell a story
