Here is an oldie and a goodie that showed up in our Mailbag. We introduced the current version of our 10′ dinghy (the Navigator) with lapstrake hull in 2002. Did you know that the 10′ Navigator is actually an evolution of a smooth side, round hull 10′ boat we started building in 1988? There are still a lot of those early versions floating around and they still work just fine.
We sold this one as a “used” (consignment) model a couple of years ago and just got a nice note and photo report from her second owner. Just goes to show that a well built fiberglass boat can live a lot longer than a rubber boat!
