Baby Tender II Builds

Steve Grimaldi

Baby Tender II was a delight to build and being the first wooden boat I built, it was also a very satisfying experience. I thought the Baby Tender II’s working life could be extended by starting the boat off as a cradle boat using your davits; turning it into a rocking boat; then a lakeshore pulling boat when not on the rockers; and finally back to a toybox boat for the stuffed toys one the little one is not so little.
