Two of my Favorite Classic Dinghy Photos

(As always, click on the photo for higher resolution.)

The first photo is a Classic International 14 sailing, an Uffa Fox design, probably 1950's.

Second one is an Australian dinghy in big breeze; guessing 1940's or 1950's. I would think she's a skiff type, either a 14 or 16 footer but the bow doesn't look plumb like a skiff should have. The name TRIAD is attached to the file.

I really enjoy what you are doing on this blog. I share your interest in classic dinghies and funky musuc. I race Lasers in Maine in the winter, have a cruising class canoe and attempt to play the uke. Weird combo, I know. My name is John Hanson and I work for WoodenBoat and publish my own magazine Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors I wanted to call John Jenkins this morning but his web site has no phone number. I sailed Stars with him the the 70's. Could you give me his number?

Thanks for the kind words. I've tried to contact you through some back channels concerning John Jenkins phone number.
