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:

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.

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 the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
