    Hi,
    I'm new to this forum and thought to also contribute while taking so much priceless knowledge form you guys :)

    I decided on the Kingfisher from Selway Fisher Design because I liked the boat. 2 people could sleep in it assuming that a boom tent covers their noses. It has a swing keel and can easily sail in shallow waters. It has a gunter rig that seems pretty efficient and keeps the spar lengths down.

    Let me share some pics and feel free to ask any questions or share advice.

    Wulkie it appears that you are an experienced craftsman who is capable of building a first class dinghy. It appears that you are using a rotating laser beam to align your parts. Your scarphing layout looks good too.

    Keep us posted about the progress of your build.
