    Default Herreshoff dinghy

    I was wondering has any one out there build the Herreshoff dinghy via the booklet ? Iíve built a clinker dinghy before however after reading the book there are a few un knowns about the meathod they used. Iím not sure if any thing is to be gained in steaming the ribs over the molds in the first place.

    I tried contacting the mystic museum with no luck so Iíd be interested to hear others view point if they have built this boat.

    many thanks Michael

    They did it that way, because they built many of them. I'd be tempted to build it in a more normal way, but then it wouldn't be quite so proper to the museum crowd.

    Why not check with the Herreshoff Museum? https://www.herreshoff.org/

    Also make sure you stick your head in across the street in the wood shops.
