Re: Building my own dingy
I lost my dinghy....a miserable little thing...no real loss really (it showed up at the marina I just moved to 2 days after I got there). I borrowed a skiff from someone to get out to my boat. 9' long 3' beam flat bottom, hard chinned...very stable a real pleasure to row and extremely simple in construction. I am building a nesting version (1/3 2/3) with 7 1/2' Sitka spruce oars, equipping it for sail and have 1.2hp out board that will work quite nicely. The one I borrowed is made of 1/2" ply....and building it much lighter and stronger.
