Mathilde

She is multi-skin glued, I guess 30 to 40 years old.

I want to rig it to teach our children sailing.

Where I'm working
by: Craig

I'm in northern Minnesota, USA west of Lake Superior.
Larson made boats in Little Falls, home of Bob Dylan.
Several other wooden boat builders back when (before aluminum and fiberglas), but those old boats are hard to find now.

Just started a blog to track the renovation:
This Olde Bote

Rig for Mathilde

Bongiorno Peter,

Unless you are prepared to modify her, as in adding a deeper keel or drop keel keep the rig small and simple.

A small sprit rig up forward could be added quite easily without too much modification.
