    Wee Adventure

    What seems like a lifetime ago I started building a tender for our boat "Adventure" which hopefully by the end of the year we will be calling it home.

    Anyway a few of the folks here were watching Wee Adventure take shape. Due to life getting in the way living I was offline for quite a while but I am pleased to say that Wee Adventure made it into the water.

    So for your viewing pleasure here she is.

    It all has to start with a plan and some bits of wood.

    Mary Anne ta and Nikkie you could build it in say 2 weeks from plan to water if you worked on it every day all day. Slowest part is waiting for glue, epoxy and paint to dry.

    So now I do the finishing touches and it's launching time.

    Most noticeable thing about it is it is super easy row and very stable. Very pleased with it. Probably $200 all up.

    Agree. You look so pleased in the second last photo, as you should be. I can only dream about doing something like this. (not a handyman)

    Glad you liked it. Mark and William, never say never, it all depends on how badly you want or need it. If you can read the plans then you could build it. In my case I needed it as a tender. Plus I enjoy building things with wood and there are some really good products out there for covering up stuff ups
