The Zeiger Family Boatbuilding Page
(Phil Bolger's Teal design)
To learn building skills to help with the process, and to give us something in which to learn to sail, we built Bolger's Teal using step-by-step, detailed instructions in Harold "Dynamite" Payson's Instant Boats. We made it over about two months, working most, but not all weekends. We named her Forget-Me-Not.
Here's one of our favorite places to sail, Auke Lake.
I customized the rowing seat slightly, so that it can be stowed flat and out of the way when not in use. I did this by building it as designed, but leaving the interlocking "leg" pieces loose. I hinged the seat to the longer leg, and added a long T-shaped piece onto which the shorter leg can be slid and secured by friction.
