The "El Toro" is a sailing dinghy design tracing back to the Richmond Yacht Club in San Francisco around 1940. This specific boat came into my care at The Center for Wooden Boat (CWB) in 2016 with a touching story: it was a project boat started in the 80's by a local father and son, but unfortunately the son too soon passed away from cancer—the boat was left unfinished for three decades. I finished the construction of this boat and it is currently used to teach youth sailing programs at CWB. Because the story touched me so much, I chose to paint it as an with the coloration of an orca—different from the other solid-colored boat of CWB's El Toro fleet.
