"Cholita Mia" is a William Atkin designed 32' cutter.
The design was based on the Colin Archer designed rescue boats of the Norwegian fishing fleet of the 19th century.
Dennis Vining from Queensland started building the hull some 30 years ago first at Redland Bay and then continued and completed in his front yard approximately five years ago.
She is built of Australian hardwood and took nearly 18 months before she had fully taken up once launched.
She is fitted out in timber and has an oregon mast and boom.
I am in the process of completing her and hope to be finished early in the new year.

Return to Your Wooden Boat Projects...
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
