    Default 24’ Ranger class gaff sloop - Smithys Boat shed

    Here’s a series of absolutely terrific build videos that I’ve just discovered (apologies if they’ve already been presented here)....

    Ian Smith is a Sydney boat builder with the Sydney Wooden Boat School in the process of building a Ranger Class Gaff Sloop and, although I haven’t been through the whole series.....YET.....what I have seen so far suggests that this is a channel definitely worth sharing here.

    Cool vid Greg.
    I would have preferred bronze fittings for the dinghy but...well...yeah...one day.
    Focus on the effort not the outcome.
