I have built 2 stitch and glue boats.


My first boat ever was a Chesapeake Light Craft Skerry.

It is still my first love.

I sail her in Lake Ontario near Toronto, Canada.

I documented the build and my experiments in sailmaking here:http://www.christinedemerchant.com/skerry.html

Last summer I built a small pram to use as a tender for my big boat. (Once bitten by the boat bug its hard to stop!)

My Apple Pie dinghy is a great success.

Not only is it very cute but works exceptionally well. http://www.christinedemerchant.com/applepielaunch.html

Building a boat or two is a fabulous way of building confidence and I think it is a life changing experience.
