William Bliss, his wife, and five children made the construction of this boat a family project. It took 6 years from 1998 to 2004. SGT. MULVANEY is a 10' Classic Dinghy designed by John Clark of Compumarine in Rio Rico, AZ. The dinghy is strip-planked with western red cedar. The Bliss family modified the plans by replacing the mahogany thwarts with caned canoe seats.
