This dinghy was designed as a simple tender for a yacht. It's size was dictated by deck stowage and it had to be lightweight but sturdy and traditional looking. The kit can be built surprisingly quickly, using the clinker plywood method  where the boat is built upside down over a framework of the centre support, stem, transom and bottom plank (all supplied). The planks are added and then it is turned over to be fitted out with trim and seats. This all takes about 40 hours but you will build an attractive, traditional looking dinghy 
The hull build kit is available and the sailing kit will be added soon (early 2022).
