Re: Low-Buck Dinghies- Lets See 'em!

there is no such thing as "leftover epoxy" - it is the start of the next project.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Allthumbs--great looking dink and thanks for sharing the pics. Is it your design or did you have plans?

Thanks, built using free plans available here: Mike Waller Yacht Design - Free Boat Plan - Boat Plans, Multihull, Monohull, Catamaran

I can't remember how long it took. A few months working off and on I think.

Re: Low-Buck Dinghies- Lets See 'em!

John Welsford's [I]Tender Behind[I] design. About 350 USD. My first shot at stitch and glue. Rows well with room for two. Good capacity. Sails one.

Re: Low-Buck Dinghies- Lets See 'em!

This is Blue Rose, the flat bottom canoe my son and I built together right before he went into the Army. It isn't a dink, but it fits the general theme of inexpensive home-made boats. I spent less than $200.00 on it, and the single most expensive item was the paint...

It has 1x12 pine sides (shaved down to 1/2"), a 3/8" plywood bottom, Douglas fir gunwales ripped out of a 2x4, a two-piece stem also of Douglas fir, and frames and transom of scrap oak I had laying around.


















Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.

Re: Low-Buck Dinghies- Lets See 'em!

Do they have to be DIY? I have an Albacore that I bought, with trailer, for $100, and a Bombard AX3 inflatable that was $250 with a 5HP outboard.

Jimgo, just like their owners, the boats don't have to be DIY, they just have to be cheap.
