Begonia is the Wooden Boat Association club boat. I don't know its history in detail but I know it was built in the early 90's by Tom Whitfeild who I believe was a local boat builder. The boat is traditional lapstrake construction with huon pine planking. The Association claims the boat is easy to set up but I prefer to watch the experts setup her rig. She does seem to be well behaved and sails well in light wind. I need to spend more time at the helm.

This project started out as a way to use up some of my extensive collection of junk pine collected from hard rubbish. The idea was to produce a knock down utility table out of scrap and move it on to a new home. What I didn't count on was just how well the design would be received in the licensed2tinker household. Now the pressure is on to turn my junk pine into fine furniture. That $75 worth new hoop pine boards will help.
