    The sail fills out nicely! The spiral lacing is perfect. I'm still working on other projects but will be in the water this month. My closest spot is the Willamette river which is clogged with salmon fisherman now. Will post photos when I get out.

    great research. I'd love to have gone and picked through that yard. Here's where I got the hand drawn picture of the Ranger line-up with the notes on the origin of the Ranger 12. I think the Ranger brand has had several owners over the year in Kent Wa...

    Here's are some more clues and history on the Ranger 12. Ranger claimed the dinghy used to create the mold was an Adelborough Lapwing designed by Laurant GIles. I believe the mold actually came from an Aldeburgh Lapwing designed by Morgan GIles. The original boat was flown over in the early...
