Baby Tender Builds

San Francisco, California


Thank you so much for your plans and your help. I finished a Baby Tender for my niece this week and am still amazed at how well it turned out. When I started, I had only basic woodworking skills and a few tools. There were times when I had my doubts, but on the day before New Year\‘s, after finishing the Whiskey planks, drinking a snort of Jameson, then flipping the hull off the molds, I couldn\‘t stop smiling. The design is beautiful, just magic. This is the hardest and most rewarding project I have ever done, and I don\‘t think I have ever learned so much so quickly. I feel like I can learn how to build anything now. After a short break, I am going to order your Jolly Boat plans.
