Dinghy restoration

Post by seaslug »

I found this free fiberglass dinghy hull on craigslist a while back and finally did a little tune up. Hull is painted with Awlgrip, and the wood is Cypress, epoxied and varnished. I don't have a reason to keep it, so I'll put an ad on craigslist to sell.

Nice work Mike, per usual!

I could use a dingy for my sailboat, can you deliver to Lake Ontario?
