Re use it or lose it

1. Hand carved wooden rudder.


3. Colour.


The crucifix timber hull and the discovery of the little plastic hippo led my son to the name of this boat. Another skimmer. Composed of vivid green rope, around a timber hull and a wooden rudder carved with a pocket knife. The sail is a prawn bait packet and the float was added to the crows nest to make it more visible further out. This boat was near as wide as it was long but setting the outriggers far enough back behind the mast seemed to overcome this and it sailed surprisingly well on and out towards the heads. Not being a particularly windy day a little blade of foam was added above the main sail to add thrust.

5. Crazy little Hippo.

6. Reflection.

7. Bon Voyage.
