Some of what has happened in “the duck pond” this week:
Tomorrow 1000km drive to north to one week hike in Lappland.
Work in progress. My design. A three person rowboat.
Prototype of Dave Gentry’s new SUP design. It’s bigger than his Aloha, with anticipated weight capacity of around 230 pounds vs. the Aloha’s 170.
My last few builders posts have showed “old men” building boats.
So here are some younger builders showing off their nearly complete 14ft Zest racing dinghy. They are all middle school students at Dr. E. A. Ricci Middle School, North Providence, RI.
They built the boat in a 6 weeks summer camp. Really impressive work, and I look forward to posting sailing photos.
Plans for Zest from Duckworks of course!
My little Selway Fisher Arctic Skua sailing canoe.

Nice stand-up cabin worked into this 20′ Caladesi Carolina Style dory. This one built near Amsterdam for use in the Zuider Zee.
