Shellback Dingy Launch

I took the boatbuilding class during IAP 2004. During 2 weeks of full time work, seven of us put together a small sailboat from plans. Learned a lot about woodwork - hopefully enough to put together my own sailboat someday. Thanks to the MIT Museum who funded the course, and Reuben and Kurt who directed us. Here's the launch in June.

On the way to the sailing pavilion.

Check it out if you ever go the the MIT sailing pavilion!
