Here’s one to follow: now equipped with a new apprentice, Essex boat builder Simon Papendick is starting work on a new clinker-built dinghy for use as a tender – a shortened 3.1m version of boat designer Andrew Wolstenholme’s Coot in larch and with oak ribs.

I get the feeling that Simon hopes to make more of these in future.

Simon’s logging the whole thing at his new weblog The new dinghy build (Mai-Star).
