SUNSHINE



J. Keith MacKenzie started construction on this Jay Benford dinghy in 2002. A 74 years of age, Keith thought it was time he built a rowing boat. He got materials and help from Captain Jim Shotwell of Nescopeck, PA. Keith and his wife, Barbara, launched SUNSHINE in June 2003 in Pine Tree Lake, MN. Keith used 1/4" mahogany plywood planking with stitch-and-glue construction, covered by 4 coats of MAS epoxy. The seats are solid mahogany.
