Congrats to Dad, how awesome is this.debby
Well done to your dad and hubby.
What exactly is a melonseed boat? It looks like a canoe. Your dad created a lovely boat, and I'm glad Steve got to race it after their hard work of redoing the boat.
Elaine, A melonseed is a traditional, 1900’s sailboat design . . . www.melonseed.com. My dad did make canoes first (also old designs) and then this sailboat. His are cedar-strip and all very beautiful. You can see how he built the sailboat here: Melonseed Build.: ) lenna
