The OK Dinghy Project (1)
Many years ago I used to sail a Ferrari Red OK Dinghy. Less than two years ago I restored a small P class yacht exactly like the one I used to sail before I graduated to the OK Dinghy. This restoration gave me the inspiration to look around for an OK Dinghy to restore - but the looking around has not had much success - never mind - it looks as though there is something more involved and interesting developing around this issue. Watch - This - Space.
The OK Dinghy was initially designed as an easily built (hard chine) relatively cheap trainer yacht for the (round bilge) Olympic Finn class yacht - but the OK dinghy has developed over the years into an impressive class of its own. This video (below) is of the Oks slightly bigger sister.
I chose this video but not the music - The music is OK (to coin a phrase) although if I had written the lyrics I may well have left out the line "Tonight God is a DJ" LOL
