Re: Building my own dingy

The D4 dinghy (free plans online) is similar to the Glen-L 8 Ball. It is a fun build. I made one out of 1/4" exterior ply. It is a bit heavy, and the wood is breaking down. But, after 5 years it still floats. The next one will be made with slightly thinner Okume marine grade ply. That will probably be lighter and last longer.
