Sometimes it is fun to put together a boat that takes little time to build and has a wealth of uses. Last winter at the Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre and Wooden Boat Society in Cowichan Bay we downloaded from the internet a set of plans for a small dinghy that is stitch and glue. The design is known as a Devlin 4... years ago I built one using the wire stitch and glue method...this one we used Zap straps...those wonderful one way plastic ties. Once the epoxy/fiberglass has kicked off on the inside a cold chisel finishes the outside flush for the outer epoxy/fiberglass tape.
This Lawton Yacht tender was built by Michael Strong in L’Etete New Brunswick over the winter months. She is planked with 3/8 inch cedar over ash frames, and fastened with copper rivets. Guards, wales and transom are made of white ash. With two rowing stations, she is able and seaworthy. Contact Mike, firstname.lastname@example.org
