5.24- Reuben's first sailboat

Reuben has been talkin' and talkin' about getting a sailboat, so I made him this, his first sailboat, for his birthday.

It is seen here floating (barely) while tied up alongside a kayak at the Oriental town Dinghy Dock.

The boat boasts a teak-planked deck, and belowdecks a V-berth, saloon, navigation station, engine room and even a head.

She is currently rigged as a uni-sail, but plans are to add a jib.
