Gdnuff Got Wet

 FINALLY! I splashed Gdnuff. She was built on the back porch of my mother's house, which sits next to a park with water. They call it a "lake", but really it's a big pond. Anyway, I splashed the boat there so my mother could see her sailing. The wind was about 13 mph this morning, but shadowed by the houses and trees nearby. Once I got out in the open, the wind was better. She was scooting right along, I was pleased with her. I do feel like I will be in the drink, if I don't pay close attention. My next outing will be a capsize test. 


  1. Looks great! We have the plans and will build one for our next dinghy.

  2. Thank you! She does sail well. I will change the tiller/rudder design, and probably eliminate the sail sleeve.
