Fliptail folding dinghy

I am considering getting the plans for this folding dinghy and wanted to know if anyone have any experience building one. Did some search on the net but couldn't find anything...

The Fliptail folding dinghy


Thanks!

Re: Fliptail folding dinghy

Looks like another "new" folding design. Nothing online means no one's built it. Looks like an easy build too. What's stopping you from building it?

Re: Fliptail folding dinghy

I love the design and the portability...and I think I am gonna go for it. I was just wondering if anyone out there can share a few pics and/or thoughts on the process. I am somehow handy and love working with my hands, but I've never worked with bending wood (jigs, whoops and all that)...the website does advertise their products as straight forward to build, so i guess it's worth a try...

You will enjoy steaming wood! Grain orientation is the make or "break" of the process. We (my son and I) used to have about a 98% success ration bending white oak and ash. 100% with white cedar.

Hey! I'm looking into building one of these myself - have you had any luck with it?
