Advice sought:

I have the complete sailing rig for a Sabot, but alas no hull. I would like to find a dingy that can use this rig (SUGGESTIONS, PLEASE!) that would tow true and could (possibly) be fitted with a small OB if I ever find any buried treasure. (I sail a Cal 20 off and around Vancouver Canada and there is lots to see on shore if I can only get there.)

Yours truely,
No Liferaft Either

First of all, Sabots are not that hard to build. They are simple vee bottom plywood boats.

WoodenBoat Magazine( publishes a variety of really nice dinghy plans. One that is similar in concept to the Sabot is the 7''7" Nutshell Dinghy (Drawings $75)

Then there is Chesapeake Light Craft ( who offers a number of nice dinghy kits and plans.

Even easier is some of the Bolger instant boats and Bolger boxes. I am not sure how you would get the drawings for one of those.

Good luck
