After the parts were cut from marine plywood by their grandfather, Tavish and Niam Rogers assembled their first boat using copper ring nails and polyurethane construction adhesive. The boys then painted the boat, attached foam swim “noodles” and decals to personalize this Fritz Funk design (Search “Wacky Lassie”). The boat is unsinkable and measures 11 feet six inches length, thirty inches beam at the gunnel. Puffin is propelled by double paddles that the boys helped finish.
