<p>December 14, 2006</p> <p>Hello There; I recently aquired this Amigo and thought you all might be interested it these photograghs. This is the first time it has been taken out of the water via trailer. It always used a travel-lift previously. So it is also the first time that the mast was removed. This is of special interest, due to the fact that this is the boat pictured on a web page link of yours. It is the boat built by Hal Pynn in Ontario, Canada. I hope that you find it interesting.</p> <p>Thank You for the time, David Hurst</p>

Update: October 2016 I have been really busy restoring my Glen-L Amigo (among other things) and will add photos in the coming weeks. I do plan to have her in the water (hopefully) in December 2016 somewhere on the South Carolina/Georgia coast and plan to do extensive cruising with my wife Lea and our Karelian Bear Dog Rumi.

Barry,

I\\\\\\\'m sending you pictures (e-pictures of photographs, excuse the poor quality) of my Amigo Sailboat. This boat (in my opinion, off course) is very attractive. It is strip-planked with western cedar, epoxy sealed inside and out. Thought you, and also Mark Harmon might be interested.

I didn\\\\\\\'t build this boat. The builder is Bill Stevens of Conn. It was built in 1990. I bought the boat. It is in my backyard for repairs. The deck is being replaced and a few other things repaired.

<p>March 19, 2008 <p>Hello Gayle, here I am again ... <p>Sending pics of the female mould and will send one of the hull once we release it from the mould. Planning to mould the cabin in place before removing the female. Its getting real exciting now. <p>Maybe I\'ll make two or three Amigos for a sailing club I\'m planing - will keep you updated. My AMIGO is coming up fast; the fibreglass hull is almost ready, fitting out the engine details now.</p> <p>Thanks and regards,</p> <p>Leo</p>

Expect to launch in a couple weeks. </p><p> Will send better pics later. </p><p> Started this Amigo August of 1998.</p>

Amigo by James Brennan

<p>Amigo by James Brennan</p> <p>April 29, 2008</p> <p>This lovely \"Amigo\" was built in 2006 by Francis Kerrivan in Dunville, Newfoundland, Canada. She was built from local spruce for the strip planking and juniper for the frames and rub rails and then glassed over. She is a sweet sailer and stole my heart, though I already owned a bigger boat. She is bare bones hull and rigging with sails and a little paint and paneling inside; I think I still have a few years to complete the bells and whistles but she is sailable now. Am presently installing a 7hp diesel and will inform you how this pans out. The boat will be sailed in Placentia Bay and the south coast of Newfoundland. If anyone has sailed these little cruisers offshore I would be glad to hear from you</p>
