I have acquired this 11.5' Old Town Sailing Dinghy from Cranberry Lake in the Adirondacks. I have the Old Town catalogs on a stick, and my search of them indicates it might be exactly my age, built in 1936. That's about the time the 11.5' dinghy was first offered with sail rig, and that year the illustration shows two side-stays. Two years later and onwards, the illustrations show four side-stays. This boat appears to have its original canvas, with the paint and filler eroded away on the bottom. I have attempted to waterproof it from the waterline down with Glu-Vit, which seems ideal for the purpose, and will try it on the water very soon. A charming boat, rugged and capacious, a proper tender for a serious yacht.
