Re: Dinghy Plans

Those Spindrift designs look very nice. I built a stitch and glue pram a couple of years ago which works ok but the pram design is iffy in any kind of sea. The only thing I use it for is when on a mooring at home in Lake Champlain. I think it would be in danger of swamping in some of the anchorages in my travels. I use a rubber ducky. The pointy bow of the Spindrift looks like a much better idea than a pram. Having a hard hulled dinghy is a good thought but it's nice to be able to fold up the ducky and get it below and out of the way.
