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

'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.

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

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

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

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

Thanks Troy... The 'kid', thanks in part, I believe, to his early exposure via this project, now in his 30s owns his own Cat 36. This fact seriously warms my heart.
