Here’s some finished photos of the Tender
1 in Duckworks, November). We launched over the Labor
She’ll be beach stored so we painted her
all white to reduce the sun load. It’ll be interesting to
see how long she holds up out in the weather spring to fall. Simple
construction…home center laun plywood, pine chines and seats,
PL construction adhesive and bronze ring nails.
It has proven to be great for beach launching.
Light to lug down to the water, high sides
for getting through the surf.
Labor day was light seas, but my father reports
he’s launched in 2 foot breakers and made it through (relatively)
When he returns he says he can ride the surf
in and let a wave set him nice and gently on the beach (we put
3 skegs on the bottom for wear protection).
Follows are more pictures of the Tender (now
called the Dad Skiff) .…more to come! Long live Duckworks.
