This dinghy was designed to be a motor runabout and work boat for a sailing club. They wanted a boat to use for setting up races and regattas plus fishing and towing. They asked for this design after a similar version had appeared on our website for a while. Their preference when we built it for them was to remove the forward thwart, fit a bulkhead and extend the foredeck into the boat. They are now considering a second or a larger one.
This dinghy is easily driven by an electric/petrol outboard and oars. It can be rigged for sailing but the plans don't detail that yet. We tried a Mirror rig which worked quite well.
The build can be Stitch & Tape or Clinker Ply and both are detailed in the plans package. The plans package consists of 7 A3 workshop drawings and step by step instructions.
