Baby Tender Builds



Al MacDonald

Elk Grove Village, Illinois


It was a real learning experience for me and the family loves it. My grandfather was a boat builder & house builder in Maine. He passed away in early 1960\‘s when I was in my early teens but I do remember my dad & grandfather working on boats in his shop and I used my grandfathers old chisels & planes to build the tender. Davits, inwales, gunwales and keel are African Mahogany, transom, quarterknees and breast hook are all Makoré, planking is Eastern White Cedar and
ribs are Ash.
