Tinderbox is a custom built, varnished wood (cold molded) IOR 1 tonner that is a work of art. She also has a workable and roomy interior, adequate for my 6'2 220 pound body. It is very usable for cruising with her 2 burner propane stove with oven, 3 cylinder diesel, fresh and tasteful interior cushions and varnished interior. It reminds me of some of the fine older boats in my 1960's youth in Santa Barbara and I'm proud to be her owner.
