    Default Fliptail 6 splashed!

    Hello everybody!

    Greetings from The Netherlands!
    My name is Igor. This is my first post and here I would like to share my last boat building project which is Fliptail 6 folding boat (from https://www.woodenwidget.com/). I splashed it in September last year. Here I attached several foto's. My previous boat projects were: Sam Devlin's Polliwog, Wood duck 10 CLC and Geodesic Airolite Sweet Pea.

    I would like to learn and ask many questions on this platform. One day I dream to build a much bigger (sailing) boat.

    kind regards,
    Igor

    Thanks! It could be somewhat lighter by using red cedar instead of marine plywood for the keel. The boat weights about 15 kilo. It is a simplified version of Berthon Boat (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berthon_Boat).
