Photo of Joseph and Gerard in the 8 ft. pram dingy Pogo.
I built this dingy in the early 1970's. It has the hull of a Winnard Sabot, but modified to use a leeboard.The sail plan (sprit rig) is loosly copied from an Optimist pram.
Its a fun boat.
The lake is in Bentsen Rio Grande State Park in South Texas. The lake is actually a resaca, which is the local name for a cut off oxbow bend in the Rio Grande. It was taken on December 29th, the weather was great for a first sail with a little boy. Clear, about 75 degrees, wind out of the NE at about 8 to 10 miles per hour. We were the only boat on the lake.
