Amigo by James Brennan

April 29, 2008

This lovely "Amigo" was built in 2006 by Francis Kerrivan in Dunville, Newfoundland, Canada. She was built from local spruce for the strip planking and juniper for the frames and rub rails and then glassed over. She is a sweet sailer and stole my heart, though I already owned a bigger boat. She is bare bones hull and rigging with sails and a little paint and paneling inside; I think I still have a few years to complete the bells and whistles but she is sailable now. Am presently installing a 7hp diesel and will inform you how this pans out. The boat will be sailed in Placentia Bay and the south coast of Newfoundland. If anyone has sailed these little cruisers offshore I would be glad to hear from you.
