Re: Building my own dingy
Just in case you want to look at other options, the first boat I built was from the "new instant boat" book by Harald Payson:
Great book with several easy to build boats and good instructions, although some of the things are dated given the new materials on the market. (I won't advice using the powder glue he suggests, just use fiberglass epoxy instead.)
There's also a web site, but I haven't looked at it much... InstantBoats.com
Building a small boat is a real kick, if your into that sort of thing. Nothing like seeing something YOU created floating on the water for the first time.
