Chris Dray Launches his 12' [3.7 M] Bahia Mini-Panga in Nicaragua

I just got this note and these pictures from Chris Dray.

Hi Jeff
Finished my second Spira designed boat, a Bahia mini panga.

This was an easy build, even for me with my basic tools, and its a sharp looking little launch. At 68, what I need is a boat light enough for me to put into the lake and haul out again by hand on my own. Just right for my wife and I to take a little sunset cruise. We get great sunsets here in front of our house.

Another great design, well done, Jeff.

Cheers,
Chris Dray

Boatbuilding Pictures

Boat Building Photos

Please don't be embarrassed to send in photos of your projects. I get a lot of emails from people who tell me about their build but never send any pictures. I'd love to see them, as would all of the other people who are either building a boat or thinking about it. They need all the encouragement they can get.
