The boat is an Alden Indian rigged with it’s original gaff sail plan. The plans are from WoodenBoat.

I converted the build from traditional lapstrake to glued lap using 3/8″ Sapele rather than the specified 5/8″ pine.

The name was originally going to be Eleanor Morgan, but every time I cast off from the mooring with my 24 year old daughter, she would sing WEEEEE! Seemed like the perfect name.
