"What a long strange trip it's been!" Our 14 ft. Abaco Dinghy arrived on the dock this afternoon and drew much attention from everyone walking or riding by. They all said that we certainly did the right thing by bringing Dandy back to where she was built. The owner of what we think is the twin sister of the dinghy has already come over to check her out, and he is pretty sure it is the mate of the boat that was made along with his.
Next step is getting the builder, Winer Malone, to come over and share his expertise and knowledge, along with hopefully filling us in on it's lineage. Then it's time for the work to begin!
