Re: Building my own dingy

if you like to build, then build, but if you are building because you think it will be a cheaper way to get to sail, then buy a cheap boat. it won't be cheaper and a way bigger time commitment then you think. even someone with a lot of experience would have a hard time finishing a dingy and have it ready to sail by the spring. the sum of all the materials and the rigging, mast, boom and sails will cost way more then you could buy a good used boat for.
