Jaysus, he started as a 'spos fan and now emulates CD. Faster, did you drop him on his head when he was younger? Repeatedly?

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

I'm considering a D5 dinghy because the plans are free and it looks easy to build. That Pippee is looking nice though.

I built this folding dinghy (Origami) from the wooden-widget site, about $500

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

Paid $112 for this on Amazon.com. Still haven't used it yet. Bought a motor mount for $17 and a trolling motor for $80. Plan to use it to take our toy poodle to shore while cruising this summer. Use only on protected waters. Planning to convert it from tiller to wheel steering.

I liked my D5. One thing I was looking for in the plans that I am building now, is for a longitudinal bench. There isn't any way to balance the boat in the D5, or other boats with tranverse benches. OTOH, the D5 rows a lot staighter with a passenger in the back.

A tad off course but has anyone considered using epdm rubber roofing material as
a skin for a foldable dink?

'Billy' Atkin and his son John designed some nice little dinks with longitudinal benches and flotation, both prams and pointy boats. The plans are available dirt cheap from John's widow Pat. Who's on my list of favorite people I've done business with, by the way... she's a sweetheart.

Atkin & Co. - Tiny Ripple

Atkin & Co. - Katydidn't & Petey Dink CM

Atkin & Co. - Precious

I like Harry Bryant's "ladybug", but I'd be hard pressed to build it cheap.

Thanks for the link. The boats shown there are very much in line with my personal tastes.
