A few months ago I saw this sweet little dinghy floating at one of the docks of our club. Knowing my daughter’s love for re-purposed things, I sent her this picture.

She quickly responded:


Well, several months later and now at the close of boating season

she asked again: ‘ Did you ask about my boat?’


In search for the owner we met the dearest elderly gentleman

who was delighted that someone had an interest.

He has owned this little beauty for over 40 years

and was so happy she will have a second life…


What my daughter plans are for Little R.E.D. remain to be seen

but should make a great future post…


…something to store beer for their upcoming wedding???

…a really cool shelf???

…baby bed???
