This dinghy was designed as a work horse for my small yacht to ferry crew and gear back and forth. These plans are for the rowing tender. She can be transported on the roof rack of the average family saloon or on a small trailer. She is quite easy to build in 6mm plywood with either 9mm or 12mm transoms depending on use. The plans include general details for adapting a sail rig for completing as a sailing dinghy.
