Inspired by Arthur Ransome’s Swallows and Amazons series of books, Steve, Fiammetta, and Elena Householder built this 10′ 2″ Acorn Puffin dinghy, AZURE, designed by Iain Oughtred. Under the guise of Otter Dotter Boats and Mater Otter Sail Loft, they built the boat from Iain’s plans and then added a sail made from a SailRite kit. “Some assembly required, wind not included.”
Iain Oughtred of Findhorn, Scotland, designed this 10' dinghy that Larry Dow built over the winter of 2002. After 200 hours of construction, he launched her in Eliot, Maine, in July 2002. He used 6mm marine plywood with a laminated fir stem and mahogany trim.
